A dash of yelling.
A pinch of frustration.
A spoonful of showing off,
and the zest of contradiction.
A healthy helping of false hope
and a cup of over confidence.
Before throwing in the twigs of
disappointment, tie them with some rope.
Achieve a raging boil,
and then toss in a sprig of mistrust
To get the perfect dish of family problems.
Serve over a bed of clashing egos
To make the perfect Family Problem Mash-up
Love’s role in this house is
Dissolving like the shell of an egg in vinegar.
Hate waiting impatiently –
Ready to explode like a volcano.
Spewing hot, molten loathing
That will engulf everyone.
Mistrust, irrationality, and stress
Already knocking at our door.
Problems spring forth like rabbits
Hopping out of a magician’s hat.
An army of worries, burdens,
And obstacles headed out way.
Only the four of us to fend them off.
United we stand.
But there is no such thing
As unity in this world, is there?
