Linda's 40th Birthday

Some birthdays one can do without

Some birthdays are a bore

At twenty-one it’s all great fun

But what about two-score?

For some it’s wine and roses

For other Phyllosan

Is forty just the start of things

Or one step from Complan

Of course, our Linda’s keeping Mum

On how she stays so fit

With nappy pins and nightly dins

And that’s just half of it

The other half is pilot John

A dab hand with a jet

He flies, he sings, she clips his wings

Our neat, trim Barbarette.
