    Post Father's Day poem... Belated

    This is a belated Father's Day poem, as in it "be late"!

    "Just Like His Dad"

    "Well, what are you going to be my boy,
    when you have reached manhood's years;
    a doctor, a lawyer, or actor great,
    moving throngs to laughter and tears?"
    But he shook his head as he gave reply
    In a serious way he had:
    "I don't think I'd care to be any of them;
    I want to be like my Dad!"

    He want to be like his Dad! You men,
    Did you ever think as you pause
    that the boy who watches your every move
    is building a set of laws?
    He's molding a life you're the model for,
    and whether it's good or bad
    depends on the kind of example set
    to the boy who'd be like his Dad.

    Would you have him go everywhere you go?
    Have him do just the things you do?
    And see everything that your eyes behold,
    and woo all the things you woo?
    When you see the worship that shines in the eyes
    of your lovable little lad,
    could you rest content if he gets his wish
    and grows up to be like his Dad?

    It's a job that none but yourself can fill;
    it's a charge you must answer for;
    it's a duty to show him the road to tread
    'ere he reaches his manhood's door.
    It's a debt you owe for the greatest joy
    on this old earth to be had;
    The pleasure of having a boy to raise
    who wants to be like his Dad!
