november 11

 

Derucha was a beautiful boy, always shared his love and favorite toy


With his prickleput-faced, intellectually dazed

brother


The people watched and blinked at each other


Derucha was born as a spark from the sun,

while Dromedius came as the wash undone


Their mother died, it was said from fright,

November eleven


Derucha said she went to heaven


Dromedius never smiled as he looked above


At the stars in the skies, a thousand pair of eyes


Derucha was a star at school,

but Dromedius stayed home,

he was known as a fool


Derucha at five, lightened his life,

with sparkling stories


That Dromedius couldn’t get,

although he said he was sorry


Derucha met a beautiful maid,

she was very sweet,

unaware of her fate


Dromedius knew inside, it was bright:

she was his mother


He fell on his knees, and he thanked his brother


Dromedius smiled as he looked above, at the stars in the skies


A missing pair of eyes


One starry night when their father wasn’t home


It happened that Dromedius was shown


The truth about the girl that seemed his mother


He peeked trough the keyhole and he saw her


She seemed in pain with Derucha rocking on her
A flashing hammer crashed Derucha’s skull


Dromedius stared at the stains on the girl


'Derucha how could you be so bad to smear our mother?'

and he ran off in the night to tell his father...
