Arbeit _ to Professor L. Friedrich

Arbeit

Professor Friedrich is not just any mentor.
He is a most embracing DoktorVATER.

Helped by many, I made good progress.
Had the whole paper laid out before me.

The most difficult chapters got finished.
Bibliography done, kanji stored in my head.

Had planned to finish it on turning 50.
But finished fleeting instead.

I said: Sorry, Herr Professor, no Doktorarbeit.
Professor said: Das ist aber auch eine Arbeit.
