To Emulate Her Mother


What womanly sister chooses

to live her life in the shadow of one

 woman who loathes herself

Knowing full well that woman’s first

 suffered a lie

only death could bow to

What fool is she

 who believes life

  will treat her differently

May pity come upon her soul

 and cover her offspring

Let the shadows play fair

as they stay in the air

Hope should despair

but beware those who occupy her lair

Who is the greater fool?

What force takes her to school?
