I have a good friend who wrote me a birthday poem a year ago, so here I am returning the favor. Happy (now slightly belated) birthday The Ranting SBox! Here’s to more years of friendship, nerdy conversations, and bad poetry.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I’ll start this one off
The same way as you.
Three years off putting up with my antics,
And somehow you’re still around.
True friends ’till the end.
You’re the coolest cat in town.
Last year you wrote me a birthday poem
And it won’t be soon forgotten
Because it was funny as hell
And the silliest present I’ve ever gotten.
So maybe I’m not as funny.
I don’t have great jokes!
But hey you’re 21 now;
How ’bout a rum and coke?
Yep that’s right,
We’re getting super old.
But we’ll never be too mature
To play Pokemon Go.
LOL just kidding.
I haven’t played since we went hunting
For rare Pokemon in Cityplace
And we both got basically nothing.
So here’s to a friend:
My eternal blogging buddy.
Someone who’s probably hung over by now…
I bet you’re feeling crummy.
Just drink some water, like you told me.
Get lots and lots of rest
And don’t become an alcoholic – you’re still in college.
You have to pass your tests!
Now get ready because I’m going to try to make you laugh:
A nose walks into a bar and asks for a drink.
The bartender says, “Sorry I can’t serve you. You’re already off your face.”
…Man I’m sorry; that joke really stinks.
I stole it from Comedy Central,
It wasn’t even mine.
I’m just a fraud.
Dirty, cheating, and lyin’.
Anyway I digress.
I’m just wishing you an awesome birthday,
That you got everything you wanted
And that’s really all I have to say.
