Of Sisters and their Daughters-in-law

Two sisters, back to back.
The younger fairer than the elder,
more cunning too.
The elder speaks little,
believes anybody even less.
The younger slanders,
misguides,
suffers from overt one-up-ship.
The elder keeps things within,
blurts out to inflame,
and suffers from one-up-ship
less overt.
Both bring daughters in law.
One gets a daughter-in-law
like her elder sister,
the other more like her younger sister.
Think of the plight of their sons.
God, why do you play such games?
Inscrutable are His ways!
