Lord Have Mercy

Messages Wishes Greetings

In a country where they turn back time…

You’ll have to keep the cake.

After sixty-five birthdays,
the Mercy Rule is invoked.

To add more would be cruel,
unfairly running up the score
in life’s football game.

A gentleman simply does
not commit such atrocities.

No more birthdays for me.

I may be old and poor, but
I am always a gentleman.
