This weekend his wife and he,

Determined to call family…

Doing some phoning

To the ones “Dad” titles owning,

But not all was cakes and tea.

His wife got a letter back

Which accused her of attack…

So personally

That they agreed

It wasn’t worth mailing one back.

His wife talked with the “Dad-in-charge”,

To facts of the issue enlarge…

It seemed the wife

Had poked into a life

That wasn’t ready to merge.

The upshot that prevailed

Was that friendly outreach had failed…

Maybe in the future

She’d be willing for them to reach her,

But for the moment she feels too assailed.
