Brave Dan

Brave Dan says he has earned his every hair of gray
As a young man he fought in a war far away
A decorated ex soldier though his medals for bravery he never display
He is rather humble of him one might say

Ten times a grandfather divorced by his wife
One who does not have stories of an easy life
Of war he has many sad stories to tell
Though for one in his eighties he looks fit and well

Brave Dan will tell you he is not one to brag
Though he was best on ground when the football club won the flag
When he kicked the winning goal the fans were singing loud
Of such a great memory should he not feel proud

Brave Dan is a man people ought to admire
He tells of how he saved widow Zoff when her house was on fire
He broke down the door and dragged her through the smoke
The octogenarian brave fellow is a legendary bloke

To tell his fictitious stories of his greatness he is all too inclined
Brave Dan is a legend only in his own mind
And in fairness to him he believes his own lies
And every fictitious story he tells to another gives rise.
