Convention

Convention

(To Grandma)

Convention will fail us, grandma dear
One of these days, as another birthday is drawing near

I hope I can manage with a proper wish
On something you no longer cherish

And if I can’t help wishing you
A happy birthday anyway

Just look at me in the eyes
And see what I dare not say
