Father's Day!


The Sunday Scribblings prompt ‘Birth’ has by happy coincidence appeared on Father’s Day, and whilst fathers are not actually able to give birth (just yet) their contribution to the happy event is toil worth enduring!

So here I present to you my second contribution to this week’s SS task. I apologise in advance for what is a dreadful piece of poetry – I feel guilty even using the term! It breaks every rule of this noble literary art . The rhymes are disjointed, it doesn’t flow and the whole thing is clumsy and random. It’s an awful read, but it was fun to write. It is after all Fathers Day, so I can do just whatever I like and if you don't like it ........tough!!!


Hip hip hooray
I’ve got some cards
I’ve got some pressies too!
Hip hip hooray
it’s Father’s Day
Gosh, how my babies grew!

A hundred years ago today
Father’s Day began
We got it from the USA
And Hallmark thinks it’s fun!

And did you know
that Father’s Day,
the day that dads have fun,
comes just nine months
before the weekend
Mothers have their day!*


* In the UK that is! Our Mothers Day is in April.


My wonderful children!

  1. Breaking rules! Isn't that what daddies do when it comes to their children? All bets are off when it comes to be the alpha protector. Happy Father's Day, Keith.

    I love it when you break the so called rules made up by a bunch of do gooders farts.

    A "critic" wrote that a bout your lovely poetry. I wholeheartally disagree. It was clever and fun to read... even if it was a little "disjointed".

    I dub you "Father Knight"...may you lead us all on a road to victory
