Who Is Father
Poet: Nat Campbell

Who is th' guy who pays th' bills
Fer all th' furbelows and frills?

Who sits up sometimes all night
Half dumb with financial fright?

Who asks th' banker for a loan
And listens to his doleful moan?

Who drinks just ordinary beer
While cocktails are for daughter dear?

Who needs a haircut all th' time
But can't afford an extra dime?

Who sends th' children off to school
To play football and act th' fool?

Who gets nothing for himself -
Looks like he's ready for th' shelf?

Who'll finally life down and die
While all th' children sob and cry?

Who will leave insurance "dough"
To be spent in a year or so?
Yer special Dad.
