Your Family's True Colors

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Your family's true colors are shades of "lustful" green.
Patrimonial review reveals a fickle scene.
Your father was licentious yet acted squeaky-clean.

Your family's true colors are shades of "greedy" black.
Matrilineal review reveals a crackerjack.
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.
Genealogical review reveals dark applique.
Your sister was struthious and hid her soul in clay.

Your family's true colors are shades of "craven" maize.
Consanguineous review reveals states of malaise.
Your children were traitorous by superficial glaze.

Your family's true colors are shades of "nippy" blue.
The historical review reveals portraits askew.
Your kinship was pugnacious in what they did accrue.
