Another birthday

Liz, you are twenty-one, alright,
but I fear my birthday poems are sounding quite trite,
because after this one, this one, and this one, my heavens,
and a fourth, and a fifth, and a sixth, and a seventh,

they're all starting to sound the same.

So I have decided to go a new route:
one that is less poetry and more vocab.

This new route is called,
