Same Blood by Sympathy Sibanda

A sister up the street

A brother down the lane

No suspicions of the occurrences

that join their blood

The present attraction

A replica of past attraction

Iconic of what joins their blood

A secret firmly kept

In the hearts of the guilty duo

Never dreamt of its exposure

Till their sin has revolted

Trailing its blood

To join with the others

Wedding bells ring

All ululate and adulate

But the troubled look won’t escape

the duo “in laws”

Who in the other life

manufactured the bride

The Minister joins the blood

Joined two decades ago
