OctPoWriMo 2019 Day 17

Topic: Family

Prompt words: Brother Sister Blood Chosen Love

Form: Kyrielle (another new one.. each line 8 syllables and the last line repeats)


Mother Father Sister Brother

Mother scowls and hollers “now stop”
Grabs a switch to give us a pop
These actions were emotional
Families are dysfunctional

Father silent stern and angry
Listens, frowns and drinks a brandy
Showing love was not possible
Families are dysfunctional

Brother sister become hateful
Rarely were they ever playful
Anything but conventional
Families are dysfunctional
