'Boun Compleanno Grande Erotico'


If we didn't have birthdays,
You wouldn't be you.
If you'd never been born,
Well then what would you do?
If you'd never been born,
Well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
or a Todd in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
Hard green tomatoes.

Or worse than all that....Why,
You might be a WASN'T!
A Wasn't has no fun at all.
No, he doesn't.
A Wasn't just isn't.
He just isn't present.
But you...You ARE YOU!
And now isn't that pleasant?

Today, you are You!
That is truer than true!
There's no one alive...
Who's you-er than you!
Shout loud, 'I am lucky
To be what I am!
Thank Goodness I'm not
Just a clam or a ham
or a dusty old jar
of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!
And that's a great thing to be!
If I say to myself,
'HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! '

Another candle on your cake?
Well, that's no cause to pout.
Be glad that you have strength,
ENOUGH
To blow the damn thing out!

'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' I shout once more,
to heck with our ride in the hearse! And,
Hooray for getting older BIG SEXY!
Happy Birthday and many more!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
