Parental Home

As days passed, the belief got stronger.
He was a shrewd man,
his eyes said so,
for eyes always betray
a person's inside.

Calculative, he manged his life
and finances meticulously.

Probably, Narcissus would see himself
in reflection, looking at this man.
Probably Freud too
could read him through.

He described his affection for his daughters
very natural and paternal.
His daughters felt their father
was unparalleled in this respect.
How his sons looked
at this skewness of their father
started unfolding
when he was no more.

One son abused his sisters.
The other was bestowed with largesse
by them, who had wrecked havoc
in their married homes, earlier.

That is a kind of paternal affection too
for grown up and married daughters!
