The favorite son

The younger generation

Churns up a realization from my stomach

That to grow old comes with the burden

Of family secrets from which they

Will always be protected

At least if I have anything to do with it

Which of their fathers never wanted children

Which of them cheated

And the sad story of the two brothers

One of them the favorite

The other most likely autistic

And how their father only beat the one

he considered to be the lesser version

And never laid a hand on his preferred son

Who was simply forced to watch

And guess which one of those two brothers

Killed himself off?
