My brother was a pain
Never listened and hyper to the max.
Most kids love watermelon, corn on the cob and grapes.
For me, they were food to fear
He would spit the seeds from the watermelon
once , one stuck to my forehead.
I was afraid he would shoot my eye out with one
I always ducked.
Corn on the cob was just as dangerous
Spitting kernels at me and sometimes
when he would bite down
the kernels would squirt
He would always go into a fit of laughter,
for me it was horror
For awhile I would pretend I didn't like the food
and excused myself from the table.
One day, we were eating corn
He didn't spit a kernel
Nor when he bit down on the cob it didn't squirt
Why the abrupt stop?
Suddenly he started to wield the cob
High up in the air, screaming like a banshee
And then it happened
Smack! right into my forehead
I had kernels and butter dripping all over my face
He went into a laughing fit
Vowing, the next time I would wage war
