Four brothers, hopeful, and determined,
with life's expectations
still bound up in a destiny
too distant to imagine.

Four brothers,
sons of immigrant parents
in a land full of bigots and opportunity.

Four brothers,
honed to the violent streets of
Manhattan where
"dego" is the tune of their derision.

Four brothers all whose songs
have been thoroughly played.
