Happy Birthday, Todd! ! ! - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Yes, He gave the nod,
to the two of you then
and he found it not odd
he'd created these men
and he christened him Todd
and assigned him to Mary,
what was scripted by God
cannot end up contrary.

From the Down Under Land
we do send our wishes
but you must understand
that you'll still do the dishes
on this day of your birth
'cause you do have great skill
and for what it is worth
keep your house very still.

Be it known that the reason
for a man's volunteering
cannot be seen as treason
just some smart engineering.

You can see she is busy
writing great poetry
so don't be in a tizzy,
let her spirit be free.

May the day give you pleasure
and the cake a success
you do have a great treasure
and a poet no less.
