Tara’s Tenth Birthday

We’re late with this here birthday scrawl,
But Tara, please remember,
That you were somewhere down in Youghal,
The first day of September.

Do the things a girl enjoys!
You’re growing too fast, Tara.
There’s time enough for seeing boys
And spreading on mascara.

I’d love to be just ten years old!
Perhaps you would trade places?
And then I’d go and get enrolled
In school, and other places.

And you could go and do my work,
Then drink a load of beer,
And I would drive your Dad berserk.
Now that’s a great idea!
