Childhood Brother

Childhood Brother

Me, a younger brother
Pulling each other’s leg
My temper was a bother:	
A fuming powder keg.

Time has set the pace
For Us to adore another:
Mark of my own face
A cherished dear brother.

Tempers used to flare
With a Cold War fist fight
When we frenziedly dared
Both were pretty right.

Time is now all gone
Age has taken its toll
Each now strays alone
Sans mirth, sans thrall.


Take away a baby’s nappy
Leave an adult man unhappy:
Infancy has its own smile
And adulthood its own vile!
