The Several Days of Birthday

by Carl Pullet

On the first day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“I’m expecting a delivery.”

On the second day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“Here, have a shirt,
I’m expecting a delivery.”

On the third day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“How ‘bout a beer,
here, have a shirt,
I’m expecting a delivery.”

On the fourth day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“Patience is a virtue,
how ‘bout a beer,
here, have a shirt,
I’m expecting a delivery.”

On the fifth day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“Backorders happen!
Patience is a virtue,
how ‘bout a beer,
here, have a shirt,
I’m expecting a delivery.”

On the sixth day of birthday my wife explained to me,
“You’re not amusing,
backorders happen!
Patience is absurd,
give me a beer,
take back the shirt,
and I’m canceling the damn delivery.”
