Papa




Papa

Yes, indeed.
That's me.
Star of the team.

Valedictorian of my class, too.
If you work hard,
I believe you can succeed

at whatever
you aim for.
Of course, when it comes to wheat

a farmer can work his tail off
and the weather decides
what will be.

  2. The ending of this is so perfect! Being a farmer does ultimately mean being at the mercy of the weather no matter how much effort has been expended.
