Add To Her Woes (Rev) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

I’ll be going alone as it should be; it’s my family and
my fault - for vacillating this is the price I pay, failing
to insist Scorpio build bridges between them & my
kids; my dad is weak - I can fly there or take a bus -
I will only stay a week; today Nici announced it’s a
heavy duty, she feels most unwilling - I’m relieved -

Now I won’t be selling out the Duchess to my kids’
critical scrutiny, nor exposing her to Nici’s game of
belittling me - in what fool’s paradise have I been to
think my kids would LIKE going with me, yet it feels
right that I go on my own, do my own thing, not make
excuses for anybody - my kids being cold and aloof

My sister the Duchess fighting for survival against
a tide of problems, I want to support her, not add to
her woes…
