Roses are red

Your farts are loud

all I ever wanted was to make you and mom proud

You've always helped me when I was blue

And you've been taking me fishing since before I was two

When I said I wanted to quit

You wouldn't hear it

You told me we were in it for the full ride

When I walked across that stage,

You glowed with pride

Don't be worried as I come of age

For I've had great teachers

That have showed me how to work with creatures

I look forward to leading lectures

Having in mind all you've taught me

From counting fingers to the importance of a tree

No matter what happens to me

I hope you know

I love you Padre
