The Best Dad In The World

My Father is a man of pride
Who often takes a swig, whenever he is down?

But despite all that
He still the best father in the world

Whenever he came from work
He'd cook and do our meals
He taught us how to clean a house
And how to make our beds

He taught us how to laugh and cry
And not be shy in front of eggs
He only ever smacked us
When we were bad, and had no ears
But still he's the best dad in the world

My father is a man of pride
Who takes no crap from any man?
He may be quite as a mouse
But when he speaks he brings down the house

Because he's a story telling man
He's a caring man
Who's endured the worst throughout the years?
At his own hands drinking his beers
But even after all that
He's still the best father in the world

Because without his hand in my life
I would not be who I am
So I say thank you

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
