Daughters Need Their Daddy

The reason Brett Favre should retire

Do not fret that Brett’s retiring.
Sixteen years is quite a run.
Number 4 is Green Bay’s glory.
‘Cept for Vince, he’s number one.

Not since Bart starred in the sixties
with his legendary arm
did good luck prevail at Lambeau.
Fans agree. Twas Brett Favre’s charm.

All the same young Brett discovered
life can sack you off the field.
When his dad died prematurely,
seemed his heart would never heal.

Holmgren coached the Gulfport QB
sanded smooth Brett’s rough MO,
challenged him to curb his drinking,
fathered him when he was low.

Now’s the time for Brett to father
while his girls are still at home.
Both his daughters need their daddy.
Life’s too short for just the phone.
