Based on a real character! One of the first people I met after we moved to Florida - we taught middle school together for a year.
Then, years later, he achieved local notoriety as the greeter at the main entrance to our local state university. He might still be there.
I knew a guy named Mr. Green
Nicest cat you ever seen
Every morning never late
At his post at the front gate
Waved to folks and said hello
Showed them kindly where to go
Always smiling rain or shine
Said you know you are a friend of mine
He’d been around and paid his due
In the army, a preacher too
Then he taught school but it made him mean
What to do thought Mr. Green
Now he is known for the special care
With which he guides us here to there
This story has a happy end
Mr. Green says you’re my friend
