Althea Ella Nora [Al] 's Reduation
Although today may be premature, we’ll mark it anyway,
We’ll honor Al in Reduation, and we’ll all have our say –
Al, you’ve been one of us from the start, from our very first day,
But now you get to wear your red hat, when we gather to play!
We wanted something for you to have…to remember this day-
And so we put our heads together, and now YOU have to pay!
For we “started” a project to sew, but time set up delay
So we give it to you to FINISH…we’re UNorganized, Aye?
But honestly, Al, our sentiments are meant in every way –
So when you find the age gets to you, just review what we say –
And you’ll find your spirits will go up; your cloud will go away,
You’ll look in the mirror with a smile and even laugh at gray!
For your SWOP sisters will support you, no matter, come what may –
And so you now enter 50-hood, well sistered, on your way –
Althea Ella Nora or Al, we present to you today
Your reduation and your red hat ... wear it proudly everyday!
