My brother

Nascent you were to this macrocosm, Blessed you were to parents, Dyspoeic, unsounded from mother’s womb you emerged, Many conceived you were with Jesus, Afore brought forth into beingness. Doctors resuscitate with oxygen mask, Travail, thirty minutes passed brought you back. Triumphant over death, won life for yourself. Whence you cried, Father gloating in joy cried a river. Thence avouch, sweven God’s work as you grow a man. engendered after, saw father’s fond on you. Through many years of togetherness; Pettifogger we fought and punished. Though non twins, grew more like identical. when you cried a child, I cried and still does. Such is the love of brother, my brother. Thither you went away to boarding school. Whereby learned ways, good and bad. And drew more to wassailer, drunkenness. dissever we became, perceived I abhorred my brother. Fondly Imbibe in whisky, disremembering your sole purpose, So fond nearly you died like once when born half dead. And whence in hospital bed you battled for life, I cried a river, my brother. I do not hate as I hate cockatrice, I care more than I care the girl of my life. And whence you live wastefully rummy, I rue. Come at able, find oneself and the purpose, my brother. The life you once battled and won when first born, Be not languish in vain. Be cumbered and hugger-mugger no more. Ere in final resting place you lay, I invoke to envision you gratified after years. Heedless of how you impeach, I despise; I merely have one brother. My brother! My brother.
