Happy Birthday To You, as it might have been written by John Darwin

Happy Birthday to you.

Squashed tomatoes and stew.

You closely resemble something

they wouldn’t allow at the zoo.

 

You are one year older:

and you still hug that rather pointless folder.

I never got why you carried it.

At least you never tried to marry it.

 

Mortality is a bit of a bastard.

I have heard of a place called Gastard,

in Wiltshire.

Jean-Claude van Damme never went there.

 

And now, you are blowing out the candles.

We might as well be lifting you by those fake brass handles.

 

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday to you.

Happy fucking birthday

 

to you.

    I never got to read this on facebook as saw it when in the middle of something. Something dull probably. Very funny; good work.
