Russell G. Robison


Hey mom, have you seen dad I asked
He’s on the throne she said
Funny in the Navy it was
Always called the head

Hey dad are you okay in there
How long you gonna be
Don’t bother me right now son
I am busy can’t you see

In time I came to understand
Why he’d go there to stay
A fort where he could go
And keep the storm outside at bay

A place where he could lock the door
A place he could retreat
On days the last thing momma was
That someone very sweet
