St Paul's Academy: Courtney Mackie



My Little Brother

He knows how to get on my nerves.
How to make me shout.
Takes my hairbrush in the morning in front of the mirror.
Music blares from his room and singing fills the house.
Do my clothes match, tell the truth?
His life revolves around football and sport.
When we're together its madness and people see double.
Heard before he is seen, usually laughing or telling a joke.
He talks to my friends, they're part of the family.
I was used to being taller and stronger than him, I was first born.
Now he can pick me up like a feather and looks down on me.
What happened to my baby brother.
