A thorn I deliver to UPS,
for sucking so bad at delivering packages.
In the urban environment of today,
why do you choose such a clunky way
to get to me my packing?
No, your Parcel Service, United, is severely lacking!

A rose I choose to give instead,
though it was against your will,
to each animal who gave its head
to my Christmas hunger still.
You tasted so nice with mustard and bread
that your remains will form a hill.

Yes, I rhymed, because It's Christmas.

God jul Smile

When it comes to UI design,
there is a golden line
and skipping it makes me rather cross.
Steam was once just fine,
and You Tube almost sublime
but now them in the bin bag I would toss.
With G+ integration and laggy scrolling you blew,
make sure to be better next time you make something new!
In the meantime, Valve and Google,
a thorn I give to you!

The rose I give in jubilation
according to every trend.
It goes in celebration
to one who was a friend.
Like the tick of clocks and change of season
getting older is hardly something new.
Yet it is an old and awfully good reason
to cry out a "Happy birthday to you"!

Happy birthday, Harkimo.

Aww, thanks mate! I wouldn't have expected you to keep track of that Razz Now, I'm not very good with rhymes, if I would try it would seem like most crimes.
Steam is neat and all, this new box of theirs might make me their thrall.

I'm kind of getting mixed signals here. Confused

A thorn I give to Bashar, for reasons wholly clear,
Or should it go to Xi Jinping? Or rather Vladimir?
The choice this year has been so great, it's difficult to pick.
Though arguably not as tough as being cold and sick,
In a UN camp in Lebanon, or Jordan or elsewhere,
A thorn I give to those of us with blood on hands of theirs.

A rose, all bright and live, I give to Multi Twenty One.
If Vettel had just listened, then, well, Webber might have won
That race there in Malaysia, in surroundings hot and wet,
But broadcast in airconditioned rooms on television sets.
A rose I give to Hulkenberg for his genius in Korea
I give it to the great F1, that I really loved this year.

A thorn, then to some people in my town,
their early usage of fireworks gives me the feeling of a clown.
I must say that it really ruins the feel,
of the New Year's Eve highlight reel.
Although great the evil is in this world,
but I must say it's getting rather old.

A rose, I say, must go to Snowden,
He showed that we're no safer than a headless hen!
Such bravery seems uncommon today,
which is why I believe we should all say Nay
to the silly acts of reckless men,
who all aught to be kept in a tiny pen.

Justin Bieber, baby, a thorn you've earned today
Rich and cool and popular, well be that as it may
Drinking, egging, drugging, and the drag-race yesterday
should be enough to your fleeting image slay.
Scores of happy fans, brimmed with love and gay
May be swapped into something more decidedly grey.
Like a gloomy prison cell.
High time to start acting well.

I was just now not nearly so cruel as I could be
And as a follow up, a rose I bestow unto thee
A normal kid, who sang and became celebrity
something that with some grade of necessity
smashes life, perspective and your ability
to grow into someone normal, so see:
'Cause society is gritty
you deserve some pity.

I dare say,
I've had enough of seeing him gay.
A foul life is not good at any time
even if you could make every girl give you much more than a dime.
Maybe some time as a convict would be nice,
I think a month or two in prison would suffice.

I really want to be evil to you,
but you do it quite well too.

Innovation, success, an idea from lost and found!
Take some digital candy, and move the pieces around!
But you better move fast, and race against the clock
You cannot wait long to monetize and sell some stock!
Because with the company an emperor naked was born.
Those who can't see it, well, they deserve a thorn.

I met a girl the other day, as charming as can be.
She spoke to me some fancy word called "humility".
I was busy boasting, and I thought that naturally,
such a long and cruddy word could not apply to me.
When I didn't seem to know it her smile lit up with glee,
I told the bitch "you are a witch" and let her lonely be.
Because, gentlemen, this time the rose will go to ME!

Ah yes. I have a fitting idea:

A rose I believe a man today should receive
for spreading his fathers word
but, no, it is something we can perceive -
many a song from his old man's lips I've heard.
John Carter Cash! On reddit, indeed.
Read up with speed.

Oh, but thorns today -
I believe many want to have their say
but truly their is but one
who acts as if he would want games to not be done
Mark Zuckerberg, a fool he is!
Destroying an invention we are sure to miss.

On this August morning I'll not hand out a thorn,
because today we celebrate that a man was born.
A rose is on the offering, dictated by the thread,
though we should bend the rule a bit and give a bunch instead.
He deserves a poet to sing of his every deed
his work, his looks, his wit and his total lack of greed.
But since it's so expensive, and I don't have the gold,
he'll get this instead; it's the thought that counts I'm told.
Send out the invitations to nations far and wide!
You've lived a quarter century, now celebrate with pride!
When everyone has gathered, come here and have a look!
We'll stand and say together "Peter: gut Geburtstag, viel Glück!"

Happy birthday Peter!

To whom this is I need not mention, because you know your name
You stopped at seven and eight hundred, my feeling: what a shame
Or perhaps I am mistaken, if I should be - then great
Either way this post was made, to celebrate the date
Because today it is your birthday, what a year its been
To lead up to this event, the turning to eighteen
And that is why I am compelled, no matter how you chose
To present in symbolism, a happy birthday rose
I could praise your character, you know it could be glary
And as you know you're great already, it is unnecessary
Instead I finish this one of with Anglo-Swedish gag:
Ha nu een riktit broa foedelseedaeg!
