Little Bro

By ''Moonlight'' K.
Grade 7, Illinois

I never think
the day would come
when my brother
would not be
a lazy bum.
Merely a boy
of eleven years
of age,
he's barely a teen,
and his mind
suits him.
He's playful,
creative, yet
argumentative,
and manages to
get on my nerves
99% of the time.
*
When we are both
old and weathered,
when we have both
endured time,
when he's ninety-eight,
and I'm around
ninety-nine,
he'll always be
my little brother.
You here that?
Mine.
