A prose poem dedicated to all the fathers out there - Happy Father's Day!
|Much jovial laughter,
And congenial toasting
From the head of our table,
That diligent and trustworthy family man
Known as our dad.
So undeniably brilliant for a purpose,
And so exceedingly proper for a cause -
But his tireless patience
And superior acumen
Come with his apropos, adjudicating, territorial command;
And his helpful leadership is guided by fairness, openness,
And timely results.
A stout hearted man of obligatory notions and trusting designs;
Whose loving and peaceful life
Will forever be treasured
For its wondrous appeal,
Unwavering spirit, and undying support
Of family, friends, and relations...
