Happy Birthday, Denis!

As a critic of note
all the words that he wrote
were of help and of use
if you were in those shoes
that would flatter your skills
like amphetamine pills,
if you listen to some
you may well guzzle rum
but he says it as is
with a flair of showbiz.
I have missed his great day
yet I hope that this may
still bring joy to his life
and prevent any strife
for this year and oh-seven
may the angels in Heaven
bless his life and his mind
as a poet who's kind.
Happy Birthday my boy
as your work is a joy
will you rest tender feet
you are always a treat.
