My Brother

October 1, 2007
By Zack Hartzman, New City, NY

He’s gonna be there today
There to annoy me
In his usual way

Once you give in to him he will never leave you alone
This house is never quite
Not when this kid is home

I wish for him to leave and I wish for him to go away
But does he? No
Not even for just one day

He likes to fool around and likes to play sports
He’s not very good
And I always crush him on the courts

I see him here, there, and there
Oh My God!
He’s everywhere

I’m tired of this and I’m tired of that
He’s really annoying me now
Like a little gnat

I give up, whatever
I’m not gonna get rid of him
He’s suck with me and I’m stuck with him
Just know that I do love my little brother
