FOOD for THOUGHT

Poem with unknown author found on va roots.Virginia Genealogy
Discussion Group.

IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS,
ALL STANDING IN A ROW,
WOULD YOU BE REALLY PROUD OF THEM,
OR DON'T YOU REALLY KNOW ?

SOME STRANGE DISCOVERIES ARE MADE,
IN CLIMBING FAMILY TREES,
AND SOME OF THEM, I'M SURE DO NOT,
PARTIC-U-LARLY PLEASE.

IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS,
ALL STANDING IN A ROW,
THERE MIGHT BE SOME OF THEM PERHAPS,
YOU WOULDN'T CARE TO KNOW.

BUT THERE'S ANOTHER QUESTION,
WHICH PRESENTS A DIFFERENT VIEW,
IF YOU COULD MEET YOUR ANCESTORS,
WOULD THEY BE PROUD OF YOU ?
