Australian Father's Day
I'm looking forward with dismay
to this year's coming Father's Day.
You see, my son in USA
says Father's Day, there is no way
that I will send you something twice
(he will not take my good advice) ,
well Father's Day is coming here
but not for 'them'. It would appear
that I can celebrate again
(as should all fathers that are men) .
The local shop, to compound troubles,
ran out, I checked it with my Hubbles,
'Potato Vodka', said the man
'I know, Sir, that you are a fan
but we have had such great demand
and management could not have planned
for all our customers this year,
so I suggest you buy some beer.'
Five times I had the special pleasure
to sire offspring, a good measure,
so maybe things will yet improve.
My daughter often makes a move
that does surprise and spurn them on
her brothers for this Pater-Thon.
To all the fathers who are reading
these lines with balding or receding
hairlines, (a sign of getting old) ,
I say, you must be somewhat bold
do tell them often, in advance
about the Day, so that your chance
of getting showered with those gifts
expands, that's how the spirit lifts.
