       Families

 

The 4 Roses:

Harmon, Evelyn, Jim, and Cathy Rose circa 1958-60

Families are wonderful.

Familes are great.

Families sit you down

to clean your plate.

 

They tell you to eat all that -

all your peas and lots of cake.

Then confess you might be

getting just a bit too fat.

 

Published in Eat, Diet, Repeat  and in Pastiche of Poetry, Volume I*, available for purchase through the Book Store page of this site.
