My Euphemism A Poem


My Euphemism

I wished him a Happy Birthday
He replied "euphemism."
I responded with
That is a good word
Which resulted in his
"Indeed" comment.

I wanted to write back
What indeed meant to me.
How it is so useful
To voice agreement.
How it was the epitome
Of emphasis employed.
How it was succinct
And to the point.

I will soon have a euphemism.
Mine is bringing me farther
Along the half century mark.
Would that I could bring myself
To be so philosophical
That my birthday
Was no big thing.
Not to celebrate
With a Happy notion
But to get over
Like a speed bump.
Taking note for a moment.
But then going onward
Slowed but not immobile.

Yeah I understand the idea that birthdays are just hoopla. LOL
