93.            BRIGADIER GENERAL JOHAN BEYERS

He know how I struggled
To get into the communications service
And how determine I can be.
He was the one
Who once said
“When I see you
I see the word
Persistence.”
Now we meet again
In the world
Of forums
And local authorities.
In the service of the aged
And the mentally ill.
We jointly soldier on
As the team we once were.
I have grown up since then.
But my rank remained
That of Fright Sergeant
It will most probably
Be this flag sergeant
Until I die.
