My sister’s home from college

and that sure makes me smile,

because I know her secret —

I’ve known it for a while.

I told her that I’d seen it,

her little tattooed rose,

but both my folks know nothing.

It’s underneath her clothes.

My sister now plays Barbies

with me, from three to four,

and after makes me coco,

the drink that I adore.

She’s never been so loving

to me, her little sis,

and when she leaves for college,

my sister I will miss.

As long as we play Barbies

and have our coco hot,

I’ll keep her rose my secret,

the only one I’ve got.

  1. AJ! I absolutely LOVE this! That is exactly the way I remember having sisters. I had two of them, and mere coercion wasn’t the half of it! Excellent characterization!

    1. I’m glad you like it. It was inspired by my own relationship with an older sister. I remember reading her letters from a boyfriend. She definitely made my life more interesting.
