Don'T Tell Maggie - Poem by maggie signaigo

Mom and Dad have problems
Be sure it does not show
Close the door…turn on the shower
So Maggie does not know
Act like the perfect couple
Smiles at the dinner table
But don’t tell Maggie
Her condition is not stable

Hide your fatal symptoms
Of a sickness sure to kill
Write a check of eternal regret
Let Maggie pay the bill
Tell your husband, did he care?
And your sons are strong enough
But don’t tell Maggie
Her we have to bluff

Whisper when you talk about it
If you must mention it at all
Don’t forget to look around first
See who is down the hall
Guard this secret carefully
Just pretend that all is well
And don’t tell Maggie
No…her you must not tell
