Would You Like Some More

My birthday was finally here,

And with it, a cold was quite clear.

I munched on some cake

That made my lungs wake,

And sneezed it right into your ear!

Age Humor

There was a woman who had a birthday
No age would she ever give away
Everyday she ate bran
Now regular on the can
A strong odor she did display.

Birthday Glee for Debbie G

  "Birthday Glee for Debbie G."

as I peeked at my calendar today
circled in red it said Debbie's Birthday
so off to shopping mall
to buy her a stress ball
she can squeeze, poke or prod everyday!

remember age is just a number, Debbie dear,
you're getting better year after year
don't worry 'bout being older
you're just wiser and bolder
how about a toast with a big keg of beer!

sending you a surprise first class mail
open immediately, without fail,
magic mirror attracts men
reflects a sexy 5 foot - ten
38-22-34 has great appeal!

then there's a love potion for fun
for a gal whose always number one
as you blow out birthday candles
forget about those "love handles"
when the smoke clears just hurry up and run!

one more little gift to ignite
in a woman's world, perfume's a delight
just one little squirt
you become instant flirt
Deb gets "lucky" on her birthday night!

hope these little treats brought you birthday cheer
with a card saying: "wish you were here"
though miles separate
we'll help you celebrate
with a big hug and kiss and tiny tear!

Natal Anniversary

A simple note for your natal anniversary
Would be no more then simply just cursory.
Yes, a word or two to wish to you
A happy birthday just wouldn't do
So I simply wrote for you this little verse, you see?

Candles and Scandals

There was an old vandal in sandals,
Who spread about rumours and scandals,
And it seems a mistake
That I baked her a cake:
She gossiped and kicked out the candles.

Birthday Limerick

Blow out the candles on your birthday cake.
Before you do that, there’s one wish you make.
Wish for one more year
to stick around here.
We’ll need one more candle, goodness sake!

Happy Birthday Fat Man

In the many long years since your birth
You've made twenty eight laps with the earth
In that time you've taken
Your fair share of bacon
And thus greatly increased in your girth

The birthday's mixed blessing

The discounts are now quite a few
And cause for a feeling that's blue
It's true--what a drag
As the parts start to sag
A bonus for age sixty-two

It is another Birthday

Time is driven in a brand new Rose Royce
calendar gives notice with a happy voice
nothing serious at stake
bring and let’s cut the cake
a cycle is covered for all to rejoice.

Birthday Lady from Algiers

A birthday lady from Algiers
Full of despair and woeful tears
Cos to her surprise
She cant see her eyes
Too many wrinkles seemed to appear

She went to her doc for advice
Saying look at me I don't look nice
So she had a face tuck
Now with any luck
She will lose that look of surprise.

Another Birthday

Another Birthday

My age is something a-frightening; 
it came on me faster than lightning! 
	As birthdays come up; 
	they’ll continually sum up, 
but instead of so dark; it’s enlightening!

Birthday Calamity

Jimmy Jones from Winnipeg
Celebrated his birthday with a keg,
That round container full of beer
Was kept by Jimmy oh so near,
That night he fell and broke his leg.

Beach Birthdays

To the lake to the lake,
Fish to fry clams to bake.
This has been grandmother's cry
Now on birthdays she brings rye,
If just once she'd bring a cake.

Happy Birthday

for the first time, I did skinny dip
I stripped off all my clothes
and struck a quick pose
I was hoping my package was equip....

Happy Birthday

After a morning jog about a mile, 
I dressed for my birthday in a grand style; 
Danced around a big white cake 
Like a white duck in a lake, 
Fondling my white puppy with a broad smile.

Been years since I've seen rubber ducky
Have a beautiful wife
And a wonderful life
Not much at all has been sucky

I know my mummy loved me,
Of that I have no fear.
We celebrated my birthday.
On August 12th each year.
But my birth cert says August 8th.
                                 Oh dear....

Happy Birthday Edward Lear

One hundred four long years ago
He never knew his fame would grow
He started a trend
That would never end
The bane of all poets, you know!

He called it a limerick, you see
It was as simple as could be
Just a touch of cheek
With a little tweak
The last line is what holds the key.

All you have to do is begin
I’ll pick up my paper and pen
Write a silly quip
It’s been a long trip
I’ll write one for you with a grin!

“There was an old lady you see
Came to poetry late, said she
She tried and she tried
Then put pen aside…
Alas, that old lady was Me!”

How Old

Its the time for the Nativity,
wonder how old He is going to be,
Prince of Peace,
true Christmas creed,
Alpha and Omega age infinite.
