Courtesy mine eldest sister Amelie

Beth (thirteen plus months my senior),

whose maternal love equals heart as emoji,

she nsync with other kith and kin

painstakingly fleshed out family tree,

formerly severely uprooted, me

knowledge of ancestry

truncated, denuded…, bereft

any extended offshoots you see,

thus without doubt earned a priori

gene nee us award for peopling bee

silly decorative swallowtail and

wild asparagus coat of arms motif,

but particularly her artistry

paternal branch Harris and

maternal Russian limb named Kuritsky,

yet now unwittingly feel stumped

I ruminate, speculate, tabulate…, re:

garding one or more descendent did trumpet

objectionable bent with bias, decadent,

flagrant… haughty jarring averse trait

invariably patriarchal heir arch key

impossible impossible to hold figurative tongue

and rebuke stereotypical tendency

resigning, excluding, kraaling…, privileges

to any persons except Caucasian wealth thee

males, who fathered established, commandeered…

western civilization paradigm, I smart

with displeasure at gross injustice curtailed free

choice to acquire unshackled life, liberty,

and pursuit amidst avast booming population,

whose supposed inalienable rights blithely

usurped and denigrated creed, ethnicity,

and indisputably those with frizzy

hair still evident this late date two thousand

nineteen, I decry, grieve, lament,… particular lee

how women haint got no choice – chattel

to grand poobahs – to terminate pregnant sea

really irksome, when predicted on incest, rape

non viable offspring…violation this

garden variety poetaster recoils with knee

jerk loathsome, how young females jailed

if they undergo abortion

(with unwanted, unloved, unborn…, bay bee

thru no fault in their own stars),

punishment nasty, brutal and abhorrent

essentially enslaving the gentler sex lee

ving terror and horror, when peering into mirror

ogre looming ready to strangle gal lest she

obey mandate else…
