Tim, Jim, and the whole horrid lot

Tim and Jim and their sister Kim
They hated each other until the end
Because in the begging the boys hurt Kim
Now we’ll go back in time to fill you in

Now Tim was nine and Jim was eight
Apart by a year and perhaps a few days
See Kim was the youngest and so hard to find
Because she was invisible, one of a kind

Kim found herself the target of all their pranks
They laughed and poked fun at Kim’s translucent face
They spoke of how no one would ever love
A girl they can’t see, thus wouldn’t speak of

While one day the boys were playing in the mud
Their attention was caught by a small muffled ‘thud’
When they looked toward the sound to see what it had been
They saw a young girl with large eyes and small chin

When she wiped away the mud they saw through her mask
And I mean this quite literally they both drew a gasp
For the first time in history they laid eyes on Kim
And then the idea came, it first came to Tim

He told Kim to stay put and led Jim away
And informed him of the plan they regret to this day
And when Jim agreed fully, they told Kim to come
“We have a surprise to for you, a surprise you will love”

They led Kim away and into a room
While she gladly followed, so little she knew
They told her to stay put in said little room
She thought all was well, she’d know otherwise soon

While the parents were gone and Kim was in her place
They got a book of matches and a few of their things
Then the two young brothers set a flame to their house
They watched the flame grow, the flame they should have doused

As their home turned to ashes the boys walked away
They laughed on the inside, and outside the same
When the parents arrived the boys told of a candle
A candle that a small girl hadn’t known how to handle
They said they’d had time to gather some things
That they hadn’t found Kim, but they had heard her screams
So the boys and the parents alike could believe
That their young daughter Kim hadn’t happened to live

Now we fast-forward to present time to see the boys
Both married with children in south Illinois
They enjoy life quite well but do no think back
To a day when licking flame sizzled and cracked

Both have wonderful jobs that they do both enjoy
They are well paid and jolly just like the two boys
Tim and Jim wouldn’t change one factor in their life
But their escapee young sister had something in mind

So one night while the men laid their heads in their beds
Their children tucked in and their wives in their hands
Their invisible sister we now know as Kim
Snuck into Tim’s house with an invisible grin

She’d bought her own matches so she didn’t waste time
She set fire to Tim’s then to Jim’s mimicking their crime
And, just as the two boys had done long ago
She walked away giggling happy but alone

Just like the boys said no one ever loved Kim
But those who had love Jim or Tim had a bad end
So if ever you happen to find an invisible friend
Please don’t underestimate them as Tim and Jim did
