A Fire On Babylon...! by bankmann

A Fire On Babylon...!

A kid swears, one day, he'll be on top; he'll show the old man; he'll be the wrathful son.
Now, the boy has become a man; has begun to grow old, and his beard has turned grey.
And the old ,am? He's been sleeping under grass, for a long time now.
So much for that, then. The old man got away in the end.
[Note: Me and my Dad got on well for a long time before he died. There's just a lot I didn't get to show him. The story above did have an ok ending in our case.]

Nice to hear you got on well with your dad. It’s hard that you didn’t got to show him all you wanted.....I miss mine

We were both knuckleheads of a similar kind; both very stubborn. But we shared a few interests; languages, odd trivia, music and photography. He was a technical engineer, and I worked a long time as an IT technician. We were both amateur teachers of a sort. And when I finally brought home Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' as a teenager, he commented that I finally had found something worth reading. :-) Yup, I miss the old fart.

LOL it sounds like you had a really good relationship - this all made me smile - engineers are a different type of personality and I worked with many for so long - I pictured one young dad and his little and the stories he'd share - I suspect his little will be sharing one day, similar to you.
