Treasure Island

Sylvia Chidi

(Germany)

I have a brother


I have a brother
Perhaps from the same mother
Perhaps from the same father
Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I ponder
Should I bother?
To know him any further

I have a brother
Who obeys orders!
A little less wilder
Always coated in leather
Carries me like a feather
Compared to the others

I have a brother
Who is a spender!
Always squanders
Roars away in thunder
At his own careless blunders

I have a brother
Who I gather
Refuses to climb the ladder
Whilst he lives with a partner
Though he loves a good flatter

Stop father! Stop mother!
One, two, three and four
Who needs another?
