Birthday Poem

October 22, 2015

for Dougal

.

If I had lots and lots and lots of dosh

I’d take you out to dinner somewhere posh

For that night I’d hire out the entire venue,

Get Anthony Bourdain to do the menu,

Buy case on case of Grange and Writer’s Tears

And fill a fridge or two with slabs of beer.

.

But I’m skint as the birds in the trees

So I can achieve none of these

But all the days of my life

Your loving wife

Are yours, and I aim to please.

.

If I had lots and lots and lots of cash

I’d hire the Socceroos to play a match

Against a team that they could easily beat

And put you and our friends in front-row seats

Book Sharon Jones at half-time then to play

A rousing chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’

.

But I’m broke as the flowers in the field

So none of these plans fruit will yield

All the days of my life

Your loving wife

Are the power I have to wield

.

And if I make you remotely

As happy as you make me

Then that’s the best give I can give, because

I’m happier than I dreamed I could be.

Dougal and Monkey Mileta_Happy Wanderer
