Behind The Quarrels Of Our Clan

Behind the clashes of our clan
Stands one woman who is as tall
As she is as thin and destructive.
Let us call her Getrude for I guess

So sly is she that she whispers into
Every ear and the lies she tells go
In and leave their prey so cold that
You can see the beginning of a wintry
Wind blowing on the head of the person
She last visited.

So wicked is her heart that it glows
Like the lava falling out of an active
Volcano. Like lava falling into the land
Her talk wiggles itself around ...

It was mincing words.
It was bouncing on me.

It was painting me.
The whip of her words
Turning me this way and that,
Pushing me away always.
