Flash 55 – Happy Birthday to Me!

Posted on 02. Oct, 2009 by in MeMe's, Poetry

Your calendar needs a mark
On this most auspicious day
For this weekly lark
That you have come to play

Find here my little ditty
That counts words of fifty five
But no need to give me pity
For I am still kicking and alive

Ready to have some fun
Today makes me fifty one

(Yes, I cheated on the grammar to get my word count, but I can since it’s my birthday. Not only can I cry if I want to but I can cheat too. And the poem is quite hitonious.)

    Happy Birthday. But you are wrong the poem is not bad enough to be hitonious. It is a great 55.

    I feel that this is an occasion when it’s okay to be slightly obnoxious, so let me share my family’s birthday dirge. Perhaps you know it:

    Oh happy birthday
    Oh happy birthday
    Pain, misery, and dispair,
    People dying everywhere,
    Oh happy birthday
    Oh happy birthday.
