The Red Ridges LXVIII



So, thank you Somadina for giving us seven sons
You are a mother in a million and worth the call
You are a pillar to the strength of the world
In existential measures and philosophies of good reckon

Thanks you for giving us the tiger and the roger
The keys to distinguished perfection in the matter
Of worldly challenges in juvenile and elderly measures
That endure the test of cleverness, soberness and wisdom

We love you for giving us Michael and George
The high towers of literate indulgence and efforts
The onus of sportsmanship and excellence
The onus of tutelage and transferred education

Yes, we are happy about Bill and the king
For checking the excesses of users and consumers
For routing the passages of services and controls
For granting the royalties of artists and the lords

Let us not forget dear Daniel and his works
With flying judges and menacing tigers attending
With counted rogers and sounding mikes in the mix
With recurring bills and elegant kings in the know
