My father was stellar, made 
Prohibition whiskey in the cellar, 
put oil of the olive in the center 
of his avocado, was no Clarence 
Darrow, but was catnip to women,
left some in sorrow, ate prime 
red meat like Ribeye and Porter-
house, saved his T- bone at dinner 
not for Spot our terrier, but for me, 
darling daughter. Now, wasn't 
that curious? Not to mention
a bit spurious.  A bone for his
daughter, for Spot, Not!
