One Single Impression: Overt


Brothers: Overt and Covert

Once there were two brothers of Wright
they were different as night and day
Fred was always dapper and bright
Ted was quiet, loved wearing grey

Fred was open, always forthright
ask him he'd tell your answer plain
but Ted talked in riddles not right
kept his thoughts inside how insane

Died years ago now with the ants
shared their tombstone aptly inscribed
Fred--open frank and apparent
Ted--hidden secret and disguised

Depends on how you write your book
do you want your friend's second look

Good one Jim! I liked it- shows how 2 sibings can be so very different; and I sure get that with my sister. And thanks for the comment and invitation. You just never know... lol!! Have a great day!

I love these two characters. I think I am a little bit of both. Your rhyme scheme made it especially fun and playful to read aloud.

I enjoyed this - gives a clear picture of the difference between the overt/covert and it's written in a clever fashion!

Hi Jim,

Your poem has me smiling this afternoon. Living in the Dayton area, I have an appreciation for the Wright Brothers for sure. My best, Rob.
