G is for Grainy
Well, snap – crackle – Pop!
W. K. Kellogg, American dry cereal manufacturer, was born on April 7, 1860. To mark this culinary celebration, today’s poetic post pertains to grains. Well, not exactly, but the tie-in will become clearer below. (Just look at the grainy image!)
Just look at this dashing young lad.
In full Army issues, he’s clad.
He stands, strong and bold,
For orders untold.
And proudly I tag him as Dad.
The image is faded and cracked,
With subject now barely intact.
But values still clear
Remain year to year
And still generations impact.
