So many memories of him and so many stories to be told. This is but one of them.


How Did He Do It?
It wasn’t easy being his sister,
For he seemed perfect in everyway.
He was a super athlete, personality plus,
And articulate in all he would say.
It seemed he could do no wrong,
And I believed he could walk on water.
He was the perfect son & I was far from,
The perfect daughter.
I don’t mean I was bad by any means,
But always found myself in a mess.
My parents loved the both of us the same,
One no more or no less.
It seems I was always in the right place,
But at the wrong time.
My brother however, left right before me,
He always turned out just fine.
I wondered how he always knew,
That trouble was coming his way.
He was never around when the dilemma came;
He already left to go play.
But there I always was right in the middle,
And an easy target to find.
How does he do it? Was what I would think,
As Dad was slapping my behind?
Usually, I didn’t care about that,
For my brother was a hero to me.
Most of the time it was all his idea,
But then he’d get up and just flee.
It took many years to figure him out,
But eventually I finally caught on.
He’d start the trouble, get out of the way,
& hand me the smoking gun.
Written by,
Bonnie May

Oh yeah! I can relate Bonnie, one of my brothers did that to me all the time;-)Excellent poem!

Reviewed by Cryssa C 5/1/2008
hee, hee, hee... I finally realized, when I was a teenager, why my mom always sent my sister ("Charlie", here on AD) and I to our rooms when my brother was tormenting us... It was because he was so much bigger and she couldn't make him go to his room. (Or... maybe it was because we would obey and he wouldn't... hee, hee...)

Oh Bonnie, I just love this poem about you and your brother. I remember what happened to him and was so sad when Donna told me. Today was a bad day for me, kept seeing Tom's death over and over again, but now o.k. Rembrances like this one are needed by everyone and you had a great time growing up together and much fun and pranks. Love, Lois
