A day to hold his best friend’s hand
crawling in the giant hamster wheel,
Never stopping until
Granny wants a picture.
They climb the winding stairs
Screaming they whiz down
Mulga Bill’s slide.
Mum, Dad and Bubs are busy too,
Cuddles for Grandparents,
Chitchat with friends
Setting out food and drinks…
Time to gather round The candles are alight
Happy Birthday Jamie! Sung with gusto.
With one big breath he blows
Trails of smoke, five in all, float away.
