Don’t Go and Ask My Family

Don’t go and ask my family
      About my Christian walk!
Thank goodness they are silent folks—
      What if the girls should talk?

It’s safe to lose my temper there;
      To be both cruel and mean,
As long as no-one hears of it,
      Or nothing has been seen!

But child, the home is paramount.
      It tests reality.
You’re real, if you are really real
      Within the family!
