Poem-6: My dad is the………………………….

My dad is a robot

He is good at a lot of things.

But you have to tell him what to do.

My dad the math magician.

Ask him any question he will answer it.

What is the square root of 2?  1.414

My dad the turtle.

He is slow and always late.

You want him at 7:30, he comes at 7:50!

My dad the quiet one.

He never yells.

Unless he is very mad.

My dad the helping hand.

He is always their when you need help.

My dad really likes to chase mice.

My dad is happy,

Poem-2: Father’s Day Poem 2 :Fishing


You like going fishing, and so do I,

I especially like the places way up high.

You took us fishing by a mini-mountain

And the fish I caught had a giant fin.

Sometimes you go fishing just for fun,

And usually, when you’re done,

There’s a fish for dinner,

If it’s Dirum, to me it’s a big prize winner!

Poem-3: Father’s Day Poem: Ping-Pong


You play Ping-Pong with Grampa nearly every night,

Opposite ends of the table, with the ball in flight.

I know you enjoy this sport a lot,

Win against you, I cannot,

You’re too good,

So if you would,

Teach me how to play like you,

I’ll try to learn Ping-Pong too.

I’ll try to learn, and make it good

So then, you won’t have to wear a hood.

The hood would have to protect your head,

If most of my hits, not all, are bad!

But if you’re not home,

Then I’ll just practice on my own!

Poem-2: Father’s Day Poem: What I Find Slightly Annoying and (Maybe) some Good Things About My Dad

For one thing, you are never here! Always annoyingly  somewhere else!

You weren’t even here to catch that crazy, food stealing mouse!

But that’s for work so I can spare you (maybe) from a lot of complaining,

You know, maybe I was just overreacting.

Then again, you are always wanting me to grow stronger,

don’t you know then I’ll have to grow longer?

For the more muscular I become,

I have to grow longer or I’ll look like a plum!

But you are helpful even though you sometimes are overdoing it,

it helps me in school even if you didn’t teach bit by bit.

You do teach me tennis though and that I like,

but why don’t you take me out to bike?

You like sports but you barely take me along,

there should a law saying “Hey! That’s wrong!”

But after all those slightly annoying things,

There some good things like you might be getting us some swings!

You are funny even though sometimes you make crack up to hard,

I’m glad you’re not fragile like a glass shard.

You always think ahead of time,

but you never come up with a good rhyme.

That is helpful during chess,

but I can win nevertheless.

You are nice but you like to smash mice,

I think the mice wants you frozen in ice!

You  swing me around until I get dizzy,

I’m glad someone agrees on things about that little missy.

I’m talking Elan the sometimes troublemaker,

I’m also glad you are not a baker,

I’d hate eating bread all day,

You take me swimming even in May! (When you could have been golfing)

Many things, good and slightly bad,

I still love you a lot because you are my dad!

He can catch a fish on a hook.
