for faintheart

Hooray, hooray,
the tenth of May -
it is my brother's natal day!

My wishes met with some delay
(my new job leaves less time to play)
they are authentic, anyway -

Although the weather's awfully gray,
though odious duties come your way
(that front desk where you have to stay,

or clients that must have their say
at you, to voicemail saying "nay" -
you'd like to drown them in the bay,

the front desk should earn hazard pay)
please let these sentiments convey
some happiness, perhaps a ray.

And now the clock does me betray -
I must decamp and go away;
Have a perfected Happy Birthday!
