new character studies – D’s brother…
…and interestingly, also good with a knife!
OK, here are two versions… different styles as well…
UPDATE: Here’s Tom’s poem which nicely ties together the facets of D’s brother’s personality!
My little sister’s such a pain
An expert in annoyance
She sees what irritates and roils
With something like clairvoyance
She tries on souls like suits of clothes
One fancy, now one drear
Each attuned to scandalize
Her family fond and dear
Not calm and wry and whimsical
Like her older brother
Who gets her out of every scrape
And now she’s in another!
Yet then she’ll say some silly thing
Naive with insight, daft
That melts my disapproval
To breathe then is to laugh!
