Graduation Day (limerick)

Updated on January 31, 2015

At son’s graduation I cried

Now whole high school heard father’s pride

Oh sure I took jeers

And laughter of peers

The fifty long years that he tried

      I hope the peers and the chanters of jeers can each say that a father accomplished such a task and met his challenges. Now it is time for the fellow to take on the world and make some major improvements. Your pal, whonu
