Poem #20 -- Happy Birthday, Franki !!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRANKI !!

We're the cupcakes,
You're the frosting.
You're the sprinkles on the top!

We're the shelves,
You're the books.
You could practically be the shop!

You're the fulcrum
of our balance.
You remind us to stay sane!

You're the laughter
that brightens our days.
A toast to you, with poetic champagne!
