Default Congrats to Ghyle

If congrats really exist, they must live in Australia with all its special/silly animals...

Anyway...

Our resident loudmouth Ghyle
will hopefully celebrate his birthday in style
but he'll excuse me if I won't move a mile
towards that place in the world where's already staying for quite while

yuck, I'm a mere rhymester, and so all will know
but then I made this thing merely for show
to let that silly oz-man know we
haven't forgoten the day he came to be


Have a good birthday, Philip!

Thank you says this lazy loudmouth,
for greeting my day with style,
with wonderful words whose happiness
is making me feel good and smile.

Thank you says Phillip behind the mask,
thank you for making me smile,
thank you for every joy given me
so far, and to be... signed... Ghyle

Thank you for your birthday wishes, and special thanks for your friendship and acceptance, which means much more to me than some may ever guess. I only hope I give back to you the joy you give to me every day of the year.

Yes I did so in style:
I parted the Red Sea, the Black and the Nile,
and all I did was scare a crocodile
that sat on the banks and munched (ham sandwich).
