Your mother was predaceous but gave little back.
Your family's true colors are shades of "angry" red.
Hereditary review reveals e*** inbred.
Your brother was pernicious and lied in all he said.
Your family's true colors are shades of "morbid" gray.

Your sister was struthious and hid her soul in clay.
Your family's true colors are shades of "craven" maize.
