Happy Birthday Pamela

Both in free verse and rhyme she’s a poet
A Winkling of note and renown
The ways that she chooses to show it
Show she’s also a girl about town

With a Sapphical ode in old Pope’s style
Or an aubade in praise of the dawn
She causes all others a broad smile
Though her rivals are often forlorn

Today she is Fifty she’s claiming
And no-one believes that its true
This terrible fibbing is shaming
She’s no nearer fifty than you!

So Pamela tell us the truth dear
You’re really just thirty I’d say
Please nobody mention her birth year
Just join me in Happy Birthday!!!
