Family

“Everyday life is like programming, I guess.
If you love something you can put beauty into it”
Donald Knuth

Family

Please do not stop and stare
Because, this, is a family affair

We stand here
Huddled together
Like the proverbial
Bird of the same feather
Or maybe,
There is a too tight tether
Binding us like leather?

But never mind
Just be kind
Leave us to our devices
Our familiar vices
And for them
Do not us despise

For we are
Who we are
A family
Of roses
Standing here
In our poses
