Marissa Hedges, Grade 4, St Patrick's Primary School
Oh brother how you annoy me so,
with your unbrushed teeth and your dirty nose.
You’re so proud of the loud noises you make,
not to mention my lollies and cakes that you take.
And why is the television tuned to only your shows?
And it’s not funny to shoot me with your arrow and bow.
You come into my bedroom and make a mess,
I’ve even caught you wearing my favourite dress!
But living with you doesn’t make me sad,
there are times when we laugh, you aren’t all that bad.
I enjoy when we play games, and you call me bud,
I even like footy, until you rub my face in the mud.
And though there are times when we don’t always agree,
there are worse things in life than one brother, like THREE!
