Keep the Peace

She fights and cusses
They say “Keep the peace”

She screams and plots
They say “Keep the peace”

She’s cunning like a snake
They say “Keep the peace”

Don’t talk to my kids
Is that a smile I see
They say “Keep the peace”

No food to eat, nobody to talk to
Can’t sit in the parlor, can’t make a sound

“Keep the peace”, “Keep the peace”
Is all I hear

Somebody has to be the bigger person
One of us has to be grown up

I’ve always heard about “stepmothers”
Just never thought I’d get one.
