    Andrew

    Tell me which came first
    The act or the lifelong shame
    Oops there goes Mum again
    At sweet16
    Her lips were sewn shut
    Her voice was emotionally cut
    Please Mummy
    I want to know his name.
    It's Andrew damn you!
    How the black dog barks
    My Mum struggles to talk
    Now 75 and 4 foot
    Her trauma thoughts are
    she's a no good slut
    Don't we all just try our best?
    Mum wailing in the kitchen
    clutching her chest
    Whenever I ask about her secret son
    Born back in the year 1961
    She croaks, 'He means nothing to you.'
    Well that's not true dear
    I had another brother who died
    We didn't get along but I still cried.
    I am not her secrets, shame or fear
    All that is left for me now
    is to be brave
    It's time to locate this brother
    or at least his grave

    I'm terrible at giving insight on other people's works. But I liked it.
