    Yup. . I did a DNA test, and though there was no expected royalty in any family lore (nor any links found) the results did hold some surprises.

    I agree with RLW, this is sad. And a sad reality. Not what I expected from the title. Interesting that you spun this direction. Very well done, Johntee!

    For some levity here is where my mind went from the title:

    Not What I Thought

    My DNA
    says I am not
    in many ways
    what I was taught
    My family’s
    not royalty
    I’m but a mutt

    I find it admirably incredible that you get all of this from one phrase. Kudos!

    Like most of my pieces it started as a line in mind, "What lies between."
    What my mind brought up then is people shocked on finding from DNA
    revelations those stepping straight-laced out of sepia photographs
    were all too human, and unforgotten, unforgiven, the rise
    now in elderly divorce once children have left home.
    One Day at a Time started as a mental image
    of a hand reaching into a refrigerator.
    Then my negative spin on things puts its clogs on.

    What comes between?

    A truth that can't be known.

    A carapace of lies and evasion.

    The warm embrace of self-delusion.

    Paroled, the sinner not the sin.

    While they are still at home

    For the children

    the show must go on.
