An Older Sister's Pantoum
We wonder why we have to have younger sisters,
More people to share things with?
How it irritates us when they sabotage these!
What makes them think that these things are fully theirs?
Little sisters who we share with
And all their prissy personalities!
The things they have aren't even theirs
They're things just owned before by us!
Adults always side with them and their personalities
Us alone on the other, annoyed and irritated
Be kind to your sister, they tell us,
They have no idea how it feels like to be older!
Have they ever experienced that feeling of being irritated?
Of dealing with unmentionable THESE?
But it is our responsibility, as the older,
To stick together with our sisters!
Who shares my feelings at some point of their childhood life? Shout "Me!!!" if you do! And for those reading who are younger sisters themselves, please do your eldest sibling a favor this afternoon- they do need rest.
Oodles of goodbyes,
