Really Awful Tr-AGED-y

Of-fish-all status whole year past

(A Sev’nty-four, at sea)


Today, instead, has at long last

Become Alexis V

Czar Alexis large

Attaining, in time gone too fast,

LXXV, you see …

LXXV colour

Translated, means I’ve reached the vast

Three-quarter century!

Three quarters of century

    (Did I spell that rite?)


  4. Alexis V… aaagh!!!! I accord you the highest possible honour: fleeing from the room screaming and holding my nose.

    A very happy 75th to you – wishing you many more years in which to inflict vile puns upon the innocent populace.

    I thought I’d post a com-ODE-y
    In response to your said tr-AGE-dy
    But when I found the pun don’t fit
    I had to take my leave of it
    And wish you every bit of cheer
    As you head t’wards your hundredth year.

    To a noble Col-league for services rendered to all or most of the Muses

    To me you’ll always be Twenty-three (about the age you were when I last saw you). I am exactly 10 years and 3 days younger than you! Wishing you health, wealth and happiness in the year to come.

      That would still have been before my development of upper-lip decoration, even.
      Felicitations on your own milestone birthday!
      Incredible to remember you as baby and toddler.
      Thanks very much.

    Hopefully it will be a while before you have to display a Granny Weatherwax type sign that reads:
    when you take a nap.
    A very happy birthday, Les.
