... Merry Birthday, Jeff!!!*... Merry Birthday, Jeff!!! by DarkSaxeBleu
Hello Gorgeous, pretty fella!
Would write you a complete novella
of crisp and charming Cinderella
draped with but a pink umbrella,
munching beef with Salmonella -
however - great. You are in luck:
my pen is simply grossly stuck!
Mean and tricksy midnight puck
with firm blessings stuffed 'n tucked
it in none too small a scale
well underneath the fluffy tail
~ of a well fed mongoose duck!
... Oh, ye gods!!!
What ever are we now to do?!!
Here's a quirky point of view:
let us fill her with fine brew;
for until she finds the loo -
our common goal we can't pursue!
So, in the Merry month of May,
- or July - whichever way -
run, have fun - enjoy your play
and dip thine whiskers in soufflé
of gifts and wishes: a neat soiree
(that we are) we cheer and say:
~ long live our Jeffy on this saintly Day!

So. What do you know of Viennese Classicism?!
It's Haydn :iconhaydnplz:, Mozart :iconpervymozartplz:, Beethoven :iconpissedoffbeethoven:, yes?
... ... Go on, put your thinking cap on!
(Yeah, you'll need a strong shot of VODKA!!! for this ... )
Turn ON the Logic button: despite sharing certain stylistic frames 18th century generally stood for, Haydn (*Rohrau) lived most of his productive years in Hungarian Esterháza and has distributed his works (and of others, it's complicated) from there, Mozart was a proud Salzburgian German (''we Germans'' phrase - Leo moved from northern Augsburg) and first hand sucked up influences from all over Europe and in total spent less than 9 years in Vienna (minus the travels) and Beethoven,

... To death quoted, but fairly accurate ~ MOSEL's description:
"Salieri was in stature small rather than large, neither fat nor lean, of a brunette complexion, lively eyes, black hair, temperament choleric, quick tempered, but able to say with Horace, *tamen ut placabilis essem*, [ his anger was easily appeased ] for reflection always very quickly took the place of his anger. He was fond of order and neatness, dressed fashionably but always in clothes suited to his years. All games were alike indifferent to him, he drank nothing but water, but was inordinately fond of backed cakes and sweets. Reading, music and solitary walks were his favourite amusements.

Cave ab homine unius libri ... "We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way." ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Had he but spar'd his Tongue and Pen, He might have rose like other Men:
But, Power was never in his Thought; And, Wealth he valu'd not a Groat:
Ingratitude he often found, And pity'd those who meant the Wound:
But, kept the Tenor of his Mind, To merit well of human Kind:
Nor made a Sacrifice of those Who still were true, to please his Foes.

''You mean to say exactly what you know; but in reality you are giving expression to what is, in all essential particulars, an hypothesis. You do not KNOW it at all; it is nothing but an hypothesis rapidly framed in your own mind. And it is an hypothesis founded on a long train of inductions and deductions.'' ~ T. H. Huxley.
