Eyelashes, Manure, and Past Job Titles ~~ Poems?

I.

The Politician  
 
Our hero didn't look his part
Eyelashes of greens, reds, yellows
Blue jeans matching light blue sport coat
Makes fellow sort of want to cry
 
Politician, heroic role
The eyelashes give him away
Doesn't matter his wife likes it
His eyes too are painted that way
 _ _ _ _

II.

Caretaker, Barnyards Unlimited 

Our hero, Farmer once before

Went to college but didn't stay
Now in the Army getting out
Spent his time, five years of his life

Told them he wouldn't reenlist  
A year of school and training two
Learned fancy stuff, electronics
Radars and computers he'd fix   

Will you re-up?  No sir, I'm through
Civilian soon, an Engineer  
Till then a two month job for you 
Haul horse manure to my garden 
 _ _ _ _

III.

New Occupation

Our man has quit with his day job 
Went back to school and learnt some more
So he's a Professor, Doctor
Make that Emeritus, retired

Professor Emeritus is a nice way to finish up.

I wonder sometimes if he doesn't miss hauling manure though. But professor and then add emeritus to it...not bad at all..

I like that he is a hero, that is enough.

Sounds like he did all of his jobs with dedication. He can feel well satisfied in his retirement.

Love the emeritus part... it takes some time to learn, but walking when you want sounds perfect.
