“Pinecone” Dillon Olson – I know many will not believe
Will actually be graduating – For some this might be hard to conceive
He didn’t want to send out announcements – But as his mom, I have the last word
So I’m sending out this rhyme – So at least you’ll all have heard!!
This has been no easy task – Four long years I’ve labored hard
Between school, sports and girls – I’ve been constantly on guard
I didn’t want him partying – For trouble is always near
And the pressure is incredible – From his friends and peers!!
And you know these kids are crazy – With ideas truly off the wall
When we were kids, no way – Did we spend this much time at the mall
We did have some funny moments – Like his first prom date last year
He looked like a deer in the headlights – In his eyes was nothing but fear!!
And I did enjoy the football – Although I worked hard to raise the dough
Running and coordinating events – As many of you already know
I am proud of his accomplishments – And the man he has become
He is always the “faithful leader” – On and off the field to the maximum!!
So when he stated quite smartly – No announcements was he sending out
I thought this is also my graduation – And I’ve still got a little clout
So, Dillon will be graduating – The Class of 2006 at Columbia Heights High
On the night of June 8th – Believe me, I’ll let out one last sigh!!
His future plans include – Going to Mankato State University for college
Like most of his peers, he’s undeclared – Hopefully he’ll study and gain some knowledge
I think he’s ready for the U – And can truly work at that fast pace
But remember, he has a mind of his own – Hopefully, he won’t just take up space!!
