Who does my brother remind me of?

Suddenly he loves me

Suddenly he doesn’t

I can never tell what he was

And what he wasn’t


Depending on the near

Or depending on the fear

He’ll take what he can get

With a whisper in your ear


Then he’ll professor wisdom

With a wave of his hands being fair

“What’s mine is yours”, he says

“But your’re standing in my air”


He’ll say that love is giving

And my pride is the love he needs

He says I’m my father’s son

Things are not to be mistaken for deeds


Then rambles on about life

Not being the same since I came

He was the last one of his kind

Till he just became an added name


Ask him? You find him Inspector Gadget

Need him? He turns to another toon

Love is not need, that is his creed

Treasure and family; if Choose one, the other maroon


I wondered long and hard

Where I’ve seen one define love so narrow

And nail emotions like arrows

My brother: He is Jack Sparrow
