NPB Peoms

For Halyna Cumiskey

And I once wondered why nobody would tell me their birthday...

---

Halyna, Halyna, another year older,
Went to the hairdressers, got a blue rinse.
Two days for the haircut, two weeks to recover as
She looked in the mirror and tried not to wince.

Plenty of cards (mine's invisible),
Once again Andrena's spelt your name wrong.
But that's no problem, 'cause with a name like hers
You can get your revenge when hers comes along.

In case you're wondering what Halyna's done today
You'll find the back system's gone down again.
She'd only come in for her Barbie Doll watch
And found out that Nick had only got Ken.

Only three verses and I'm out of ideas,
Such a short poem is almost a crime.
So I'll have to watch carefully all through the year
And write twice as much when it comes to next time.
