A Bargain

Dysfunctional family.
Strangers intermingling.
Enemies are more welcoming.

The cycle from past generations
just keeps repeating itself.
Bad family relations.
Bad marriages; cheating men.

No one wants to help each other out.
Strangers have a better
chance at breaking ground.

If they decide to help another out,
there’s a hefty price to pay.
A bargain for one’s soul.
