Such is Life

Put your arm around my shoulder.
And seat yourself by me,
Tell me you’re my favourite brother,
To this, watch me agree.

Tell me of your sadness,
How your family fell apart,
As sibling versus sibling,
Tore pieces from your heart.

Look me in the eye again,
Your search for tears is vain,
Cos’ the hatchet fell on me as well,
Unlike you I feel no pain.
