That old familial roller coaster

When you are hurt you
lash out with much ado
your anger has no taboo.
Emotional didgeridoo
bids calm empathy a toodle-oo.
No worries about what you misconstrue
because, sometimes, that’s what we all do.
Love that’s strong when the skies are blue
must be larger in rain too.
That’s true human kung fu.
And so: I love you.

When you are hurt you
lash out with much ado
your anger has no taboo.
Emotional didgeridoo
bids calm empathy a toodle-oo.

No worries about what you misconstrue.

Because, sometimes, that’s what we all do.
Love that’s strong when the skies are blue
must be larger in rain too.
That’s true human kung fu.
And so: I love you.
