The Future is pregnant; nine months we must wait
Or so it does seem since the Future is late.
And we, the first sibling, are not sure what comes –
A brother who hits and makes racket on drums?
Or sister who cries and then lays blame on me?
Or either who turns out as nice as can be?
Be wary when Future is pregnant; its child
May turn out a monster or one nice and mild.
