God rest your soul
The sins of the father shall be forever imprinted on your weary brow
He filchered and fettled and frolicked in the sun
Leaving behind a string of homeless wives and penniless sons
These faults are incumbent on you and you will falter and fail
Unless you take heed of the signs and learn the lessons.
Give constancy care and compassion
Avoid adultery and count your blessings.
Alison Jean Hankinson
For d’verse poetics, the challenge was sign.
