Honor Thy Father

Honor Thy Father

 

“Off to the barber, Polack, with your beard!”
Respecting elders isn’t Hamlet’s style.
The elder world is vainer than he feared.
“Off to the barber, Polack, with your beard!”
The elder wisdom should have disappeared
By now. The elder charity is vile.
“Off to the barber, Polack, with your beard!”
Respecting elders isn’t Hamlet’s style.

 

—Tom Riley
