Warned my infant mother was so very small
That all 1927's art and science might not
Keep her this side of her mother's grave
Her Grandmother Lil and my Great Aunt Kitty
Said they'd no intent of letting her die.
In the grand story of her survival the men
Were shadows. You can see it in the photos;
They have kind eyes but look so tired;
Samael or Azrael would have pushed right through them.
Providence, though, had decreed they'd have
Fierce wives and implacable daughters.
