He is the last of his branch

With no one to carry on…

The task of producing progeny

Has always been gone.

No matter whom he married

The answer would be the same…

Only by adoption

Could he pass along his name.

The last of his kind,

His brother’s line goes on…

He can pass along his stories,

But his genes will be soon gone.


–Jonathan Caswell
