At his old age,
He has so much rage.

With his bibs all covered in oil and dirt,
His favorite saying “A little dirt don’t hurt”.

With only a little white hair left on his head,
He says it used to be all over his head and red.

So as he works hard all day and night;
Fighting for just the morning sunlight.

Though now he is all bitter and old;
Still hoping to someday find his pot of gold.

We all say the pot of gold is only at the end of the rainbow.
He says “No, that special pot of gold is right below where my beautiful crops grow.
