“This above all: to thine own self be true” by Shakespeare

Thank you for the birthday cake, it tasted like whipped butter.
Thank you for the present too, I liked that pizza cutter.
Thank you for the birthday song your singing made me deaf... But HEY no HARM!
Thank you for the birthday punch, although you broke my arm.
Thank Alina,
And thank you Polina,
I'll thank you again for my most restless birthday,
I'll wish you the same on your Birthday next Thursday!

The author's comments:
This was written when I was in middle school. We read a birthday poem and teacher told us to write one for ourselves thinking back on our birthdays. I decided to take all those little things that irritate people on birthdays and turn them into a joke. The horrible cake, unwanted present, loud and unpracticed singing and birthday punches (where does that come from?).
