Happy-event poem

2016-04-26 06:00

SO often all we read in letters from readers are complaints, never giving thanks for positive happenings. I thought it would be nice to acknowledge a happy event by submitting a poem.

I have a friend named Jerico,

He’s the very best car guard one could know.

He shows me to my wheelchair bay

Greets me with a cheery bright “Good day”.

Unloads my walker, brings it round

Once my feet are set on solid ground.

Makes sure I put my keys away

Before joining in the shopping fray.

(I once dropped them upon the floor

Which caused such panic and uproar).

I surely want to give him praise

For he’s kind and helpful in all ways.

So I would like to commend this man,

I’m surely not his only fan.

If there were prizes to be won

By those whose work is so well done,

He’d win them all without a doubt

For his example does stand out.

Dear Jerico you really are

A very bright and shining star!

I hope your employers will take note

Of this, my rousing well done vote!
