The Brother Hood

Despite all my values, I know I should

Tell you not to join the Brother Hood.

I really don't want to start a fight,

But I don't want you to ruin her life.


I don't want to tell you how to live,

But if brotherhood is the only excuse you give,

I can't let you hurt another innocent soul.

It's tragic that you think it's cool.


A soul was just shattered yesterday,

But you still went out to party today.

In that same building where tragedy struck,

You threw ping pong balls into a red solo cup.


You say you want to join the Brother Hood.

I'd like to believe that you are good,

But if you join that hood of men,

I can no longer be your friend.

    An honest friend giving honest good advice. A friend who would rather be honest and lose you than lie and keep you. Well penned.

    They sound a shifty lot, to join. Wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them! lol.
