sisters and dishes

we chewed a feud and foul'd
some cups, and knives and pans
playing empty surface rules
we ignored all calls for hands
like sunshine succored cats
we licked the pause ourselves
and cowered in i.m. chats
till Dad just up'd and yelled
red hen's immortal words
so we said o.k. we heard
and promptly called for elves
