On Becoming 69

Every birthday is Earth day, a Mirth Day! –
A Let Them Eat Cake but be Mindful of Girth day!
A yowza reminder of Everyone’s Worth Day!
A jeezus! I wish I could spend it in Perth day!
At last I’ve decided it’s fine
To reveal to the masses I’m now sixty-nine,
And with luck from the gods in the heavenly
realms and the ones down below that bedevil me --
who knows, I might live to be seventy. But ach! I’m
now surely prey to the terrible crime
of my having committed an inexact rhyme.
But you know what? Tuff noogies!
