it’s been said many times
a house is not a home
it’s just a dwelling place
to get through days

it’s been said many times
a home is made up of
a loving father, a caring mother
and kids to share

yet, through and through
over the years, over time
we’ve witnessed, homes
crumble down

and for most they say
it’s the father, not so loving
or the mother, not so caring
which leaves the kids scuffling

but i say my dear
my home is with you
regardless of
no matter what

Oops, You Did It Again!

shock, oh my senses when i heard the news

kindly tell me how did it happen

you bet on our house over your addiction, yes?

under what circumstances should you think i forgive you then?

really, dear, you have the audacity to do it

you are unbelievable, yet there you are promising again

  2. For Val’s Harrisham Rhyme on forgiveness https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/looking-for-an-august-scavenger-hunt/

The elements of the Harrisham Rhyme are:

  1. a hexastich, a poem in six lines.
  2. written with meter or syllable count at the discretion of the poet.
  3. rhymed, ababab.
  4. written with sort of chain at the beginning of each line. The last letter of the first word of each line is the first letter of the first word of the next line. The first word of the poem may begin with any letter.
