Estate -/- Divorce

10:13
Estate

Entertaining one’s many relations
Prosperity’s priceless advantage

While impoverish’d relatives repel
Prosperity charms consanguinity

Our relatives hungry honeybees
Our riches, nectar

As insects ignore flowerlessness
Relations deride destitution

***

Gentile, unabashed, extragenerous largesse
Swarming genefellows engulf

Descended inheritances diligently preserv’d
Scoundrels soon squander

When heirs squabble recklessly
Strangers inherit estates


10:14
Divorce

Abuse, insanity, infidelity, desertion:
Increase divorce’s likelihood

When pains outnumber benefits
Dissolve unsatisfactory marriages

Ogygian marriage creates battlefields
While tenderness fades

Houses of faineant procrastinators
Dilapidate into divorce

***

When aftermath augurs unbearable
Seek divorce cautiously

How many dissapointing marriages
Linger until death

When separation seems certain
Understand childrens’ helplessness
