An I.O.U For A Weeble’s Birthday Ode

I had intended a sterling post
Replete with metaphors galore
To send Madame Weebles a birthday toast
In return for hers a fortnight before.

But my headaches had more
Of intrusion in store
Then aught for which I was ready.
My poor pain-wracked brain
Wasn’t up to the strain.
(And the meds make my hands none too steady.)

I’m afraid this is all I can manufacture
A promissory note for her day.
When my skull’s not about to fracture,
I’ll create a much better wordplay.

So to the lady fair,
Who knows tools of the air,
With which great powers have warred,
A very Happy Birthday
May all things come your way,
and I hope I haven’t left you bored.

Happy Birthday, Madame! May this day bring you all you wish for, and may all your hopes be realised. And I WILL write you something in payback for your wonderful birthday tribute to me, as soon as I see only ONE computer in front of me!

Also, please visit LeClown at and Frank at, among many others who are doing tributes to this special lady.

    If this is the kind of thing you come up with even when you are sick, then I am a wee bit jealous of you!

    I have nominated you for 2 out of 3 awards:
    Sorry John, you don’t qualify for one of the awards, but I couldn’t leave you out of the others.

    • Egads, TWO awards? You’re just bound and determined to make sure I don’t catch up with my backlog, ain’t ya? 😉
      Seriously, thanks! I’ll drop by and get them, either later today or tomorrow. 😀

    I’m the one old enough to have studied at Shakespeare’s knee, and I can’t rhyme moon and June. How do you do it, Cliff’s Notes? Nice post. I thought I was your headache.

    • I don’t really know how I do it, the words just kinda pop into my head – when my brain isn’t suing for a trial separation.
      And you’re not my headache. You’re overshooting by oh, say, 3 feet – give or take. 😉
