The social clicks of poke and post or such
Now facilitate the way we keep in touch
And Likes like candles light up the profile pages
To show our great connectedness.
But long before the World Wide Web
Brought new currency to the way
We value social worth,
We wished good friends
The boon of serial returns
And untaxed happiness
To mark their date of birth.
So as more ancient status updates used to say,
Let the returns be many -and happy- of the day!
