- Bronwyn's Birthday: : Humour


It's Bronwyn's birthday today, her age has upped a notch
That's OK as long as on her wrinkles you don't keep watch
The spider veins, liver spots, grey hairs poking through
Are signs that on this earth, Bronwyn is not so new

She's been around a bit, done childhood and all that stuff
Now she's not exactly old and I wouldn't say her meat is tough
She could probably still dance all night if that would take her fancy
But she doesn't, because her hip and knee, well they are a little chancy

Still cook a delicious meal, she can, and wash up all the dishes
Although I'm not so sure that it's one of her greatest wishes
Sat up cosy reading a great book, now we're getting closer
So I just hope that the rest of her life, she makes the very most'er

(Sydney, Australia - 2008)

The firste stock-father of gentleness,

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
