Birthday Poem

If one is lucky enough to thrive
He will, one day, reach fifty-five.

It’s just a number, nothing more
With senior discounts — galore!

Ten percent off at the Greasy Spoon
Every Monday and Tuesday afternoon!

Buy two coffees, get one free
(Also available for hot or iced tea).

Celebrate celebrate celebrate!
Five dollars off at Motel 8!

And if all that doesn’t win the day
Medicare is just a few years away…

Such a birthday might not be funny
Without saving all that money.
