Time was when we were all boys,

Our dads and grandpas were the men,

Standing strong and tall behind us,

A type of God, way-back when.

“Time was” does not conveniently stay,

Time illusively passes to pass away,

The dad and grandpa lie on yonder hill,

We “boys” must their shoes try to fill,

Be strong “old boy.”  Do God’s fine will.

          childishly concerned about


                   an unreal world of play.
