Brian B of Memento Moron is both a fresh Dad and an (at least) occasional poet. Better add him to the ol' blog roll while I think of it. Anyway, he had written something a while back and posted it here. He calls it a doggerell, my esteemed hermano says it's poetry. I side with my bro here, and link to it as an outstanding statement of the importance of our family ties, both present and past. Being the family history nut that I am, as well as a Dad, that kind of statement is irresistable.
Thanks, Brian, and belated congrats for The Lad!
