Happy Birthday, Ted!

Dru has written a poem for Ted, who is five today:

To Ted on his birthday

I hope your birthday brings you
A cowpat nice and wet:
Some extra smelly fox poo;
No visit to the vet;
Much illicit snaffling
Of someone else's dinner;
Not too much that's baffling
For a hairy piebald sinner.

Dru Marland

Ted really likes it apart from the sinner bit.   And the waiting around to sample the cake.

Hurry up!

It's my birthday, not his!

If I stare long enough, it will gravitate into my mouth ...
