Happy Birthday Charity - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A youngish girl named Charity
still unencumbered, bold and free
lives in the State of Michigan
and thinks about her future plan.

At thirteen it is really time
that she consider how to climb
but not to Mount Achievus, no
I think she'll leave that to a pro.

We at P/H do know her mother
and figure that you'll be the other
great soul within your family,
(of course, Bro Chase may not agree) ,

so, with much joy we wish to you
all happiness from all the crew
the number thirteen is a start
next year we'll call you our sweet heart.
