To Father (Bowsey Lee Thompson)

by R. Fitzgerld Nixon

father is a cover
to mother a lover
to his sister a brother
can't replace him with another
his establishment is rare
so people stop and stare

the man is 100% cool
don't play the fool
his responsibility
provide tranquility

yeah! peace in the valley
if he make it past 60
that will be something to see

believe in his reprieve
love on his shirt sleeve
save you JESUS
he's the one that pleases

my man is a giant
hold up the family like atlas
he is a wonder 
a winner and a closer

fix it like McGYVER
truth serum for liars
my man is on fire

when he is at home peace is a given
no other way of livin'
keep him close
he don't boast
bring home the bacon and the toast
if my man was a steak,
sirlon from his loins
and ain't no divorce
run like a horse

so to dad, we love you always
and rest in peace old man
