Birthday Preterition

Although my birthday's very soon,
I won't expect a card or gift 
(the shops are open late tonight);
don't think of me; I won't be miffed.

These aftershaves, these ties and shirts
are looking good - but save your cash;
and at my age my birthday's banned!
(That barber shop would wax my 'tache).

Those shops have books I love to read;
I drink that whisky, and that beer.
I don't suppose I'll be surprised
by any type of gift this year...

(not for real) for Sara's preterition contest, 4th April 2016

    Good write Jack. I too don't celebrate my birthday. Don't think it is a worthwhile celebration, its an unnecessary diversion.

    Loved this humourous write Jack - I'd rather forget my birthday now Jack - I buy myself a bunch of my favourite carnations from my son and I'm a happy bunny with very little money being spent:-) good luck in the contest:-) hugs Jan xx
