A Toast to the Ladies
Dedicated to all the wives and girlfriends who support their partners. Originally written as a toast for a 12 Regiment Royal Artillery WOs' and Sgts' Mess Dinner.
Published in the Anthology "Letters from the Soul"
with their elegance and their beauty,
Support us in our careers
as though it was their duty,
They listen to our problems
day after day,
The same old problems,
They´ve been listening to since May,
Chefs, accountants, nannies and councillors
are just a few of their talents.
And when things are hectic
they mostly keep their balance.
And what do they get
when they've worked a long hard day.
I'll tell you something gents
they don't ask for any pay.
So how can we show gratitude for what is clearly so demanding.
Its quite simple
Gentlemen, please be upstanding,
Robert C Millar
