is mine so stay
away from it and leave
me be to play as I see fit
or I’ll tell mom that you’ve been hitting me
and then you’ll be in trouble. See?
so go away before
I shove you through
that’s fine I’ll go
and fly our kite without
you ’cause you’d prob’ly make it crash
and then I’d have to beat you to a pulp
and you’d go crying home for sure
’cause you are such a wimp
I hope you trip
the kite, you say?
now that sounds fun I’ll come
and we can play together, ‘Kay?
and then we’ll kick the ball together too!
I’m sorry I was rude to you
I hope we can make peace
it’s silly how
for sure, let’s go
I’ll grab the kite and you
can go ask mom if she has string
and we’ll use one of dad’s old neckties for
the tail. For it’s more fun to play
together don’t you think?
why do we fight
Form: “Quarrel” Created by Gay R. Cannon. For a description of the form and its rules, click here. Sharing this with dVerse, where today’s prompt is brothers/sisters, and with napowrimo.net where we were encouraged to write dialogue. The quarrel form seemed ideal for combining the prompts and writing about a fictitious (but all too possible) argument and resolution between a couple of siblings.
