Our Parents and Sikhi; a Short Poem

The dad picks up a barcardi bottle and asks for some glasses.
Opening the bottle and pouring the drinks
- the son looks on and says IS THIS SIKHI?

Swearing and ranting, he goes "this is the life!"
The son and mother, help the father to get upstairs to bed.
- the son looks on and says IS THIS SIKHI?

Waking up in the morning, "Waheguru, Waheguru" says the father.
Having a shower and freshening up, the father says, "we're going to the Gurdwara?"

Last night he was drinking and today he stands and gives a talk at the Gurdwara.
"You go home. I have a Gurdwara meeting to attend" says the Father.
- the son looks on and says IS THIS SIKHI?

Coming home from the Gurdwara meeting, he goes to the pub.
Drinking with his friends, "We put the Giani in his place!" he laughs.
Dragged home by his friends, the door is knocked! Here have your father.
- the sons looks on and says IS THIS SIKHI?
