Father's Day poem for Grandpa Frank
I never saw Grandpa wear LevisĀ®,
or any other brand of blue jeans;
he always wore khakis
to church.

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
and funerals.
