THE DUMBEST, SMART MAN

The dumbest, smart man
Has bent his last bow
Common sense he was lackin’
But, intelligent, no doubt

His I.Q. was genius
Human nature was low
So much still to learn
But, for him, time to go

He tought me mechanics,
Math, history, and how to fight
Now his fighting days are over
He went on wading to the light

So, I have a prayer
Dear God, it is for you
Please look after my Daddy
As I wish I could do

And thank you for the time
Well spent by his side
I will never forget
The way he lived with pride

    MIranda, what an honest and lovely tribute you have penned here. I know a few people this way. They are just too smart to "get" the things we low level intelligences get as common sense. My dad is a bit like this too. And thanks for that burlesque contest. I just finished reading all the winners. NOt a bad one in the bunch. LUv, Andrea
