To good men who are called Dad

on

Slayer of the dragon
Bringer of the bacon
The local machismo
The family dynamo
Chaser of the boogey man
The best man
In the world
Hero in every sense of the word
To fathers all over
On this day and all others

    Bravo! I find this piece very dramatic and hilarious. The Father depicted here must be a Superhero of sorts. Super Pops Man to the rescue! The protector of the …..Ok, I’m stuck now and done goofing around! Doc, you watch too many fantasy and adventure flicks o. Slayer of the Dragon?! Hian! Movie buff! LMAO!

    Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers and expectant Fathers out there, who are worthy of being called ‘Fathers’, in the real sense of the word! You guys rock n rule! *winks* LOL

      you got the gist of the poem…to all good men who are (worthy to be) called ‘Dad’
      sadly not all men are.

      to that little girl and boy, the Father is a super hero, a dragon slayer, the one that makes the nightmares go away…the defender of the universe, the one who rocks their world, their protector….

      happy is the man, who achieves this status…

      Hi John, thank you…Happy Father’s day!

  3. Fatherhood is such a high calling, I loved this poem for depicting some of the qualities of a dad. It may appear as though they should be super men but I think it begins with an understanding of the office and a desire to be all this and more. I celebrate men who have risen to the office and continue to aspire to be better.
    In a generation that screams ‘Where are the fathers?’. I celebrate men that rise to the challenge in spite of their lack of fathers to inspire them. God bless you!!!

      Thanks ma’am
      we need more men to step up to ‘fatherhood’ and be the kind of men that holds up the family unit….and provide true leadership

So, what do you think?
