A Bargain

Dysfunctional family, strangers intermingling,
enemies welcomed with open arms,
the cycle from past generations keeps repeating
itself: weak family relations, awful marriages,
cheating men. No one wants to talk about
the dysfunctionality; everyone suffers in silence;
no one wants to help each other out;
strangers have a better chance
of breaking ground and making a prosperity killing.
If they support one another, there’s a hefty price
to pay—a bargain for one’s soul
as a domestic caregiver.
