And To Think I Thought

There were those
born into a house of prose:
     wash those dishes.
     take out that trash.
     don’t you sass me.
 
But I was
born into a house of poetry:
     Shiloh, when I was young…
     He maketh me to lie down in green…
     Baby sister, I was born game…
 
And to think I thought
we once were poor.
Now I remember different.
