Retirement - Poem by AHO Speaks

Thirty-one years of people, paper and promotion
Each required an individual effort and devotion.
Most of those I started with have gone their way
My time to turn in the badge and call it a day.

I have lived here longer than any home I bought
It has been my benefactor for more than I sought.
My companion longer than all that I had
Accompanied me when two sons called me dad.

It allowed me to meet a variety of human endeavor
To work with those who lacked the word never.
It gave me contact with the genius, tireless and we
Truly the melting pot of lives and people I would see.
