My Brother’s Friends

for Justin, Fathers Day 2016

My brother’s friends with carnies
he gets corndogs, dozens, free.
He’s also friends with babies,
and the fans of Eazy-E.

He befriended his teachers
leaving me to disappoint. 
He’s even friends with creatures
who say, “moo” and “bah” and “oink.”

He’s befriended Companies
like the Raiders, IBM,
struggled with the Cantonese
but he got them in the end. 

My brother’s friends with friends of 
friends. And friends of their friends too
and friends of friends of friends of
friends. He’ll soon be friends with you.
