To tell you how our family’s
We send to you this Valentin’.
Not too clever, or too pretty.
But it gets to the nitty gritty:
Cliff reloads bullets, plays with
Sits most of the day, po’ tired
Sometimes he fixes tractors too
When there is nuthin’ else to
Deb runs to town and then runs
No time to clean, dishes stack.
Dinner will be a little late.
Oh well, we’ll just pretend we
Rhian earned his G.E.D.
(For he is bril – li –ant,
Now he needs to find some work.
If he gets bored he’ll go
Dave and Jordan do their sums,
Recite till they get sore gums.
Night and day it’s two times
Until their faces turn real blue!
Now you know just how we’re
I’ll stop now before I ruin
This here poem wrote for you.
Oh, by the way, we love ya too!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
