Brothers and sisters


As the Samson cut-out
Splits from Delilah
We sprang in on the school

My sister and I
Like gangbusters
A group of youngsters

Peered at us
In the sun
Of a dusty Methodist hall

“Sorry, out shopping”
Not thinking
It was a sin

On the Sabbath
We were
Split up

She chose Luke
and Matthew
I chose John
