George was a bit of a poet in his later years. His daughter had his collection of poetry made up in a small book. Here's a sample:
MY BRIGHT RED JUMPSUIT by George Akard
I bought a bright red jumpsuit, the color's a little loud.
There's no doubt about it - makes you stand out in a crowd.
The shade is sort of fire engine red and it was just my luck
the first smart aleck that I met said, "Where'd you park your truck?"
A little old lady at the store - and she was just a funnin'
"You can't slip up on anyone cause they can hear you comin'."
I thought of giving it away - let someone else have fun,
but then again I can't do that cause I don't hate no one.
I guess I might as well keep it - the thought occurred to me
I should never be hit by a car unless the driver can't see.
