The Family War

October 9, 2008
By Alex Brown, Chicago, IL

My life is the Trojan War and it goes on and on.
I am Achilles, the one who ended the Trojan War.
My mom is the wall between me and my enemy.
My dad is the Gods working on both sides at the same time.
My cat is the Helen who was fought over and kidnapped.
My younger brother is Hector, the provoker who started the war.
My older brother is Agamemnon, the one who I aggravate and the one who attacks my younger brother.
My Dog is the bystander who watched it and wrote it all on paper.
My Gerbil is the opposing force.
My degus are the force that I command to attack.
My house is what borders Troy at all times.
