Run Daddy, Run!!

I watch my Dad with awe and pride

As the streets of Goa he does glide

He grins away and nonchalantly zooms

The finish line in the far distance looms

He doesn’t seem to sweat or even tire

The whole race will come down to the wire

Each step’s more powerful than the last

The half way mark he has long passed

He’s getting closer, but so are the rest

Come on Daddy, be the best!!

His strides are full of spirit and grace

It looks more like heats than a race

Will he be first?? Will he come third??

All the worms to the early bird

Faster, faster, he closes them down

A hundred metres from the crown!!

Only one more guy standing in his way

“Win, Dad!!” I fervently pray

With a final step, with one last look

Dad and The Dude take the ribbon of its hook

After moments of tension, the results are in

The Dude has beaten Daddy, by an INCH of his chin!!

I can hardly believe it, the tears well up

I watch as The Dude lifts the winner’s cup

But there standing on the podium sleek

Is my father, hardly shy or meek

He congratulates The Dude without a hint of jealousy

And that’s why my Dad’ll always be a champ to me!!
