Florence and Mabel
It started a long time ago
That fiendish, wretched sin of blame.
Two people on whom grace bestowed,
Adam and Eve, hiding in shame.
Down through many millennia,
Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel,
Even today’s millennials.
Strife next door, Florence and Mabel.
Science, knowledge, education,
We know more than Cain and Abel.
But PhD’s information
Can’t help fix Florence and Mabel.
They both want peace but can’t stop blame.
Conflict at the dining table.
Words that hurt, attitudes of shame.
Only God can fix Florence and Mabel.
