My Brother

My brother had his friends and I had mine. We were playing in a tree that was easy to climb. He was showing off jumping from limb to limb only this time he missed and I watched him fall. One bone is broken his pride was a little hurt. Bad news for my Mother who just got off from work. Like a hero our friends carried him to my Mother. Who showed more anger than alarm? Her ten-year-old showoff had just broken his arm. Didn't come to any real harm. At least he wasn't bleeding and hadn't broken his neck. Sad now the Hospital will be getting most of my Mother's small check.
