Survivor Insanity by Wanda Morrow Clevenger

the aunts and uncles
have left us
one after another
in rather
quick succession

and those few left
have hunkered down
in hostile opposition

bullies on a
shrinking playground
calling names
making enemies
out of make believe

safety in numbers
they think—
survivor insanity
