Brother Bollocks
was always able
to physically
attain things
that others
could not

he would help
to get them
what they wanted

they seemed
satisfied

pleased

although
he could never
understand
why

the things
within his grasp
seemed
so cheap

so useless

so worldly

what he
wanted
was not
so easily
acquired

not
so simply
wrapped
within fingers

he wanted
more

but he
forever settled
for that within
arms' length

the ordinary
objects

perhaps
Brother Bollocks
was only meant
for the necessities

leaving
the bigger
thoughts

the greater
accomplishments

for a more
ambitious
breed

instead
of dwelling
he grabbed
a good book

wondering
how such
wonderful pages
could be conceived
by someone
of his kind
