A House Divided - Poem by ronald stroman

In
a house
divided,
nothing is added
nothing multiplies,
nothing ever grows:
when Chaos
is invited to lounge
on your couch,
and sleep
in your bed.

Where
'Bad News' refuses
to shower:
the toilet isn't flushed
and hands
are never washed;
because of attitudes that stink.

In a house
where Eviction gives notice:
Jealousy chooses Hate
to be stronger than Love,
as Anger and Hostility
argue:
about Nobody payin'
the rent.

In a house
divided,
Slander is served in the kitchen,
keeping family members sick:
because the Cook
is the Poison.

In a divided house:
where
Paranoia & Suspicion is…,
the welcome mat,
that Frustration steps on:
the Housekeeper
is a fool.

where
Home-sweet-Home
is never ever home,
and calls 'Collect':
he never pays his way
long distant.

In a house
divided,
Gossip, Rumors and Lies,
are three
ugly-hearted sisters
living in it,
a divided house:
where the dishes are dirty
and trash overflows,
'cause Gossip needs scandal
Rumor never drinks her stories straight,
while Lies...
keeps everyone divided:
when she won't speak the truth.
