Crooked Pictures

The pictures in the
luxurious two story house
hang crooked;
rightly so –
hanging in the home
of hypocrisy.

The pictures –
remnants of a time
when two sisters could
speak without fear—
malevolent monster.

And now, the sisters smile
sadly in frames.
Even the background
trees grow disfigured.
For it seems –
that green doth
come between.
