Brother From Another Father


you will know his father,

and his father will know your uncle,

and your uncle,

will know your friend’s father.

then, your friend’s brother,

will know your brother,

and together they will have,

grandfathers who were friends;

who grew up where you stand,

and have taken the land,

from Their hands.

and they will all

know every father

in the whole city

(who is worth knowing?).

and together

(all 10 men)

will forge a bridge

to each other's homes

leaving out

the 90 Others

who live just as close.
