Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy...

Does anybody know a word 
That sort of rhymes with "quint?"
In English, is there such a word?
If so, please give a hint.

'Cause we all want to celebrate
The birthday of the Five;
So rhyming "quint" is needed
And a goal for which to strive.

If such a rhyme is possible,
Perhaps we'll have to squint,
And search through scads of volumes
For a word that sounds like "quint."

Or have a steel trap-like mind
Or knowledge sharp as flint;
Else wise it is impossible 
To rhyme a word with "quint."

So happy birthday, ALL of you,
Each one of you a "quint."
We hope you get a bunch of gifts
And loot that fills the Mint!

Your Faithful Super Hero,

Kernal "Batman" Ken

I have to say Uncle Ken that the Batman mask is awesome, and I love your poem.

You are the best!

Oh and happy birthday quints!

Your poem is ex-cell-ent
Another word that rhymes
with Quint.

As to the mask, much better than the last one. Truly, you are one of my super heroes.

Love the poem Uncle Ken. Very clever.

I have done a post that should please her royalness. (Queenie) Her favored reporter has covered the most prestigious event of the summer.

Ahh, a little rhyme from one of our favorite poets for five of our favorite babies. Totally appropriate! Loved it.

Sue said...

You are a lyrical genius.

Good poem Ken. I have to tell you that I've had more then one run in with the Verizon Nazis. I was so frustrated one day after I had sat in their store for an hour only to be informed by this guy named Barbara that they could only work through Kevin, the policy holder. I went to the exit door turned around and then announced to the whole entire world "This is a very stupid place" Thus cementing in the minds of all who could hear and see that I was an idiot. I still use Verizon, because despite the humiliation I suffered. We have had great service through them.

We all loved the poem at our house, and yours was the cutest card we received! You are so clever!

Love the mask!
