Brother

Brother

"Quick" he shouts
As we run upstairs
Rushing to the bedroom,
Hearing knocking on the front door
We slam the door behind you
And move the bed
The bookshelf
Anything to stop them
Because we don't want them in,
Outside the door
They shout
They knock
As we block the door
From the unwanted terror
The dreaded thought
The kissy girls await
