Siblings

December 6, 2008
By Caroline Fu, Knoxville, TN

They pout and they scream
Like you're in a bad dream.
You yell at them to not sing,
You'll argue over anything.

When you're trying to work,
They'll act like a jerk.
And you want to have some fun,
Once they've annoyed you enough, they're not done.

But with whomever else would you play?
With whomever else would you spend your day?
Who else would accompany you,
On bike rides, short walks, and trips to the zoo?

Who else would help you in a computer game?
Who else would tell you the story you wrote is lame?
With who else could you have a fun fight?
With who else could you talk to all night?

Friendships come and go, every month, every day,
But siblings will awlays be together like PB

I wrote this poem in 8th grade reading class when we were studying couplets.
