The Brother

By Sadie Crawford, Age 13, North Carolina


A girl of age twelve is
Becoming angry
‘Cause her brother is
Doing mean things to her like
Eating her ice cream,
Failing to clean her bathroom,
Going into her room,
Hiding her toys,
Increasing the dirt in the house,
Jostling her around,
Kicking her cat,
Licking her food,
Mixing the playdough,
Nibbling her bread,
Or even
Pulling her hair.
“Quit that!” she’s saying,
“Right now!
Stop or I will
Tell mom!
Use your brain and stop
Vexing me!
Will you please?!
X-rays may be necessary for my cat!
You kicked it!
Zip your evil side!”
