by S. D. Kilmer
Why are topics of Importance always swept under the rug?
Always "hush! hush!"
Like the runaway child, the Uncle philanderer,
The Father abuser and the Sister addict, the Mother sterile.
Then there's the Adoptee.
A conversation that is rarely free.
Lift up any rug in the family house.
The maid and her trail left behind.
There you will find, at least, one of these kind.
Hush! Code for family secrets.
