Deadwood - Family Tree

I’m pruning the family tree tonight
putting an end to further growth
you should have kept your sap within
and honoured our wedding oath

New shoots you have been sprouting
in a garden not your own
her plot was on the larger size
where many seeds had blown

Small wonder that I’m seeing red
and giving in to rage
I’m chopping off a rotten branch
to create another page

I just got Gold in a poetry contest with this little ditty.  Yeah I was shocked too!
