Feliz Cumpleanos! or Cinco de C-Unit

You were born on a school day,
when I was just six.
They didn't name you Laura
and that made me pissed.
Your hair was springy
in the color of gold
and your cheeks so plump
I had to grab hold.
You were silly and hyper
and always so happy
but remember the time
when you felt "cwappy".
You danced and you sang
and you never were quiet
but when you played Barbies
you were a riot.
You didn't eat veggies
and cried until noon,
and drove me crazy
"with a wooden spoon!"
You had shiny spandex
that were smooth as silk
and "I have a question-
What about the milk?"
We'd hide in small spaces
like under our bed,
and even the couch
as we listened to what they said.
Your voice is so pretty
and your songs are so sweet
but I hate your obsession
with your friggin feet! (hee hee hee)
Today your curls still
spring from your head
and all of your oddities
went to Rye Bread.
I love you, my sister
and wish you the best,
Happy Birthday C-Unit
You're still high-test!

C-Unit-there was some confusion about the basketball people here-just so you know, yes, they are "little people"
