Father’s Day. June 18th, 2017

 

Let’s hear it for our awesome dads!

Traditionally, the family’s unsung heroes.

Some reassigned, new gender as sheroes.

 

Some denigrated for their arm-waving ‘dad dancing’

prompted by magical memories: youthful romancing.

Some harshly relegated, downgraded by post-modern society;

Fortunately, fatherhood’s joy promotes responsible sobriety.

 

Oh Father. Fatherly, hidden figures.

Some present; some absent

gone away somewhere.

Alas some, gone too soon.

 

Thank you awesome dads

for your enduring Faith, Hope and Love.

For your giant, baby steps on the moon.
