Brothers, Boys,Men



Dedicated to my lovable annoying brothers, Gaines Thomas III and Isiah Thomas

Ill-mannered and irritating
Sometimes mean
A great protector
And a spoiled brat
Oh, brother

Gross and dirty
With bugs and filth
Pulling hair and burping
Taunting and frustrating
Oh, boy

Sometimes a friend
Hanging out, having fun
A security blanket
A listening ear and a strong shoulder
Your brother is a boy
Then he becomes a man
One thing remains the same
He is still rude, obnoxious,
Annoying, and a pain
Ah, man!
