Charm

My brother charmed the ladies on the bus
He charmed the teachers and the parish priest
When at home he spared no charm for us

When I asked him  why he said,because.
Those do best who say the very least
My brother charmed old ladies on the bus

I asked him to be kind; said he was
I ate   the green herbs  at his marriage feast
When at home he had no charm for us

With age he  grew much closer, in the blood
He was  not  a   friend , he was a beast
My brother charmed old ladies and the fuzz

Now  he’s  changed, he’s almost getting  good
We seem  more  like each other in  life’s tests
When at home he had no charm for us

I don’t  know why he fought.I had no  rest
But I bequeath him love if I go  first
My brother charmed old ladies on the bus
Now at home he  has learned  charm for us
