Who Is Going to Tell Her
Who is going to tell her we asked each other,
Your sister, your aunt, married to your brother.
Tell her in a nice way we cautioned the loser,
Sandra glared at us, the worst straw chooser.
She sat and stared but did not talk at all.
Supposed to tell her today, not next fall.
We knew this could quickly go south,
for a fly does not enter a closed mouth…
