Grandma’s tired of pussyfooting, Mama’s tired of tact.
Daddy has lost his silken tongue. I fear that is a fact.
Grandpa has no further wish to sugar coat and pander.
We’ve had an epidemic of hereditary candor!
Fur is flying everywhere. We’re anything but truthless.
We could use some diplomacy, for it’s grown rather ruthless.
Grandma has admitted that Grandpa cannot kiss.
Dad told my Mom her cooking is a bit remiss.
Mom told my dad her former beau would like to get together
and that he has a motorbike and dresses in black leather.
Grandpa just seems hard at work working up his dander.
I think that he has been done in by all the family slander.
I just sit and listen, for I am only ten,
and I am quite astonished at what I’m taking in.
This family dynamic is something new to me.
I think I’ve learned the value of duplicity!!!
