My brothers a bother

My brother’s a bother.
My mother and father
say, “Don’t bother him
and he won’t bother you.”

But bugging my brother,
one way or another,
is one of the things that
I most like to do.

I like to annoy him.
I really enjoy him
whenever he’s yelling,
“You’re being a pest!”

My father and mother
say, “Don’t bug your brother!”
But bugging my brother
is what I do best.

It’s really exciting
whenever we’re fighting.
It’s awesome to argue
and never agree.

But I’ll have to quit it.
I hate to admit it,
but maybe the bothersome
brother is me.
