Father's Day poem for Grandpa Frank
|I never saw Grandpa wear Levis®,
or any other brand of blue jeans;
he always wore khakis
He wore overalls to work,
and on his days off
when he cleaned out the chicken coop
or weeded the garden.
I don't think Grandpa owned
a pair of denims.
He was raised on a farm
at a time
when you had only two types of clothing:
overalls for work
and Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes
for dress-up occasions
