Quit Touching Me!


PAD, Day 23 - quit what you're doing
no form

Quit Touching Me!

I love my little brother
He takes all my abuse.
I love him like no other
All teasing I unloose.

"Stop staring at me!" he complains.
"I'm not," in my defense.
He turns and sticks his tongue out,
And is caught, no recompense.

I copy everything he does
And every word he utters.
When he's had enough of it
"I'm dumb," is what he mutters.

The toughest torture he's put through
Is when my finger hovers.
"I'm not touching you," I smile and tease.
He's the best of little brothers.

Love this! Makes me think back to when my brother and I were little. Although, I am the youngest rather than my brother. I'd hate to think how many times we probably uttered "quit touching me!" when we were kids.
