I live in Queensland known as the sunny state
but also lived in the freezing Himalayas, my fate
My war-damaged father cured me of ever being late
an odd father but kind man he was everyone’s mate

Ne’er a harsh word about anyone, he had no hate
so good to others meant he never had a spate
Although a thyroid condition made him over weight
Whenever I had a date he waited by the front gate

For he knew what lads might try with his Kate
none of them measured up, they just didn’t rate
although he became partial to surfer Nat
who turned out so cute he was gay bait

Daily Prompt:  Sunny
