Brothers MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   Two brothers I had once

When I wasn't here.

When I was old enough to understand

I knew I had to know.

In the living room I stand

and opened the box that held the clipping

that offered the shattering news.

My brother was dead

I had only one left

One brother I have left

and I know he loves me.

He's older and stronger now,

and so am I.

Out in the streets,

he hangs with his friends

Every shooting I hear

I fear for the day

When I will hear

No brothers I have left.
