Bragging Rights - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Bragging Rights

I’m feeling rather curious
If not down right ridiculous.
I’m married to a great grandma
She thinks I am peculiar
because I say I’m very glad
to be at last a great Granddad.
Although she will admit to me
in private that’s she’s glad to be
Allowed to call her son Granddad
a privilege she’s never had
but one she willing to pursue
if only for a week or two
The truth is we are pleased to be
part of a growing family.
We hope quite soon to get to know
our first great grandson Little Joe
My lady and I have no doubt
we have something to brag about.
As we grow old disgracefully
We will brag that’s a certainty.

    Good on you Ivor, and many congratulations on the new arrival. They certainly keep you young, if exhausted. Lovely poem all about what families are all about. Enjoyed it.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
