subtle like a hammer

aunt minnie was tactless
she was subtle
like a hammer
especially with aunt marie
she’d slam her
we had a family meeting
when our granny
passed away
to vote on what to do about
upcoming holidays
aunt marie said
i’ll do christmas
minnie grunted rudely
oh, how great,
i just can’t wait,
what’s christmas like
done crudely?
she said marie’s
house was too small
to even host a grudge in
that was minnnie
sweet as pie and
subtle like a bludgeon
