The Middle-Child Blues

The Middle-Child Blues




A clever, bluesy riff on middle-kid angst

Lee has the low-down, big-frown, sulkin?-all-aroundtown blues. His older brother gets all the big-kid privileges, and no one expects his little sister to do anything but be cute. And sometimes his family even leaves him behind! But when Lee breaks out his guitar and finally makes his voice be heard, he draws a big crowd. It turns out lots and lots of people share his middle-kid pain-and he loves how being stuck in the middle is making him the center of attention.

Unless you want to commit fully to reading it as a blues song kinda of a dud. A little muddled, but does show the unfairness of being a middle-child.
