I’ve been given some pretty big shoes to fill with today’s prompt at dVersePoets Brian Miller has teased us with the challenge of writing while keeping “idioms” in mind. Considering we have folks visitng from all over, this should make for some pretty fun reading. Here’s my addition to the melting pot.
Flesh & Blood
Blood might be thicker than water
but once poisoned can not be cleaned.
However, when degree is considered
along with need and necessity
there may be hope for replacement
Constantly playing devil’s advocate
just to keep things interesting
when drastic times call for drastic measures
and all too soon, slowly but surely
they all start dropping like flies
To get down to brass tactics
There are going to be times when
you just have to get over it
Let go and let god
because you know in your heart of hearts
Blood is thicker than water.
