The text reads:

What is a Dad?

A feeder, a changer, a safeguard from danger

A stubbly snorer, an offspring adorer

A sandcastle digger, a tree-house rigger

A planner & wisher, a wasp & bug squisher.

A hider & seeker, a natural competer

A storybook reader, a motorway speeder

A great fire lighter & ‘dad joke’ reciter

A cuddly tickler, rarely a stickler.

A room decorator, a shopping trip hater

A spider remover, allergic to hoover

A butler & porter, a coach & supporter

A sticker, a tricker & ball-loving kicker.

A tutor, commuter & whiz with computer

A batsman & bowler, financial controller

A gadget admirer, a BBQ firer

A lender, a mender, a knightly defender.

A grower, a mower, an everything knower

A bottle uncorker, a supper-time talker

A firework banger, a wallpaper hanger

A game inventor, role model & mentor.

A bin putter-outer & sometimes a shouter

A free taxi driver, a slipper of fiver

A party enhancer, embarrassing dancer

A contest decider, a lecture provider (line 24)

A terrible teaser & all round good geezer

A giver-awayer & grandchildren player... (line 26)

That’s what makes a Dad!
