And now, birthday wishes, SUNG!

To a writer of my acquaintance:
octoberland,” I do proclaim, “is likely smiling now
At thoughts of happy birthday-ness, delivered to her. How?
By phone, by ’Net, by gifts in the mail, by censored signals of smoke
(They’re censored ’cause they’re racy enough to shock some gentlefolk)
And these convey in varying ways our fondness for this dame
Who marshals words and thoughts in ways that might bring her acclaim!
I cheer you on, octoberland, as you begin Year Next;
I hope this year brings joy, and hope, and “Paid to Jennifer” checks.”
Happy birthday, Jen. Make this a good year.
