Young Philadelphian switches coasts to live
with Uncle Phil, three cousins, and Aunt Viv.
Kind Paula's gentle to this singer's flaws,
but snarky Simon holds back his applause.
A bigot in an armchair, dingbat spouse,
blonde daughter, meathead son-in-law: one house.
Radar hears choppers, Hawkeye's had a drink,
Winchester's stuffy, Klinger's wearing pink.
The Dibley parish council starts to bicker
when Geraldine becomes the latest vicar.
A pair of sibling shrinks. Dad with bad legs.
Sweet Daphne. Tossed salad and scrambled eggs.
Poetry by Thomas DeFreitas
