Birthday Poem for Gavin Henry, 9 Years Old

we hope you enjoyed the day
a week early, but it's all just the same

there was food, and some basketball too
there's one thing that's still left to do

the cake and the candles are done
and happy birthday was by all of us sung

but there's one thing that's left to be given
a gift, that great birthday tradition!

we thought of this, and of that, and the other
and we dismissed them one after another

but an idea from nowhere just came
we'll give him a ___, and enjoy a game!

(We gave him a baseball glove and the promise of a Mariners game.  The basketball reference was to watching the Mav's kick the Heat's a*s!)
