Happy Birthday, Dad!!!

Today is my Dad's 75th birthday.  In honor of today, and the fact that he always jokes that he was born in a barn, I wrote him a poem to commemorate his birthday.

Born in a Barn

In the middle of the night,
by the light of noon,
A rooster jumped up,
Started playing a spoon.

The hens joined in
On the old, rusty saw
Then the pigs jumped in
With a screech and a caw.

The horses stood up
And danced a foxtrot.
A fox sneaked up
To dance the robot.

Cows shook hands saying
“What a fine bloke!”
While the ox began
To play his yoke.

He put it to his mouth
To blow like a horn.
The farm celebrated ‘cause
Chris Yoder was born!

Happy Birthday, Dad!!!!!!
