My brother had a tough life
Then he made you his wife
You've been here through thick and thin
He won a wife, but a kind sister-in-law
I win
You've put up with him and his family
I just would like to say Thank-you

School Project

Hello I was wondering if you minded that I used your poem for a school English project. I was going to use a poem about tolerance and found yours the most interesting so far! I am 13 and in the 8th grade, right now we are learning about genocides in Darfur and Rwanda, so we are doing a project about tolernace. Hope you don't mind.
