The Sisters Brothers - Patrick deWitt (2011)

The Sisters Brothers

I read this book some time ago
And was glad to read again
The first person views
Of gruesome tales
From a tough guy
Who needs a friend.

The Journey these brothers take
Is violence filled and cruel
With alcohol and jealousy
Our friend’s moral rift
Is fuelled

The life he found
Takes its toll
His questioning in vain
The domineering Sisters
Bleeding every vein

Will our brother find his way?
Will he find his peace?
Or will the choices of his life
Send him to the Beast?

Sam Stops (Hobart Chapter)
