Mother-in-law (Martyr – day 12 prompt)

(Martyr – day 12 prompt)

Doing for others
Selfless servitude in chains:
the mother-in-law

Kitchen staff and maid
Thankless. Not compensated.
Manacled by vows.

Her paypal is love
Depositless, all withdrawals.
taken advantage.

Says she doesn’t mind.
Says she’s happy to do it.
But her wrinkles frown.

Woman as Martyr.
Just a Husband’s Father’s Wife.
