MONSTERS-IN-LAW

Inherited relatives,
irrelevant for the most part.
Not close to my heart,
more behind and a bit lower.
There is this pain associated
with my association to them.
Distance is the stance we
take; a mutual tolerance.
But, all effort is made to
perpetuate the masquerade.
Polite hellos at weddings
and burials. Save the women
and children, Keep the torches
and pitchforks at the ready.
