Elizabeth’s Birthday

Elizabeth,

is this your official birthday?

The Queen has both an official and a real birthday.

When young, one of your brothers remarked Elizabeth is called after an English Queen.

She is not, said your mother.

Births, marriages and deaths are all around.  Hatched, matched and despatched as we newspaper people know it.

Have you read Malthus?

Over population leading to world starvation.

Dean Swift, apart from writing Gulliver’s Travels, said the poor can eat their young.  A Modest Proposal.

He left the little wealth he had

to build a house for fools and mad

and showed by this satiric touch

no nation needed it so much.

And I quote.  From his self-penned obituary.  Its well to be prepared.

Anyway, happy birthday and many of them.  Join the wrinklies,

d

Elizabeth is my niece, pregnant with anticipation.  The term fat, fair and forty does not apply to her.  She is dark haired.

Inferences are in the eye of the beholder.
