Starting Trouble

It’s a totally boring day.
I’m sure it will anger my mother,
But there’s nothing better to do;
I’ll pick a fight with my brother.

On second thought, a fight
Might not be so fun;
My brother’s a lot bigger.
I’m the little one.

He’ll get really mad,
And chase me down the hall.
He’ll twist me like a pretzel
And bounce me like a ball.

I will not start a fight
And anger darling mother.
But deep down inside I wish
I had a little brother.
