Would you wish Happy Birthday to a poet?

29 years ago today, a baby boy was born; it was NOT Peter Benoit. Today IS Peter's birthday though so... What mystery of universal consequence Could over years and time Turn chaos into common sense And cause our worlds to rhyme?

What mystery of universal consequence
Could over years and time
Turn chaos into common sense
And cause our worlds to rhyme?

What causes create friendships that are sweet and rare
Betwixt one another
With neither plan nor thought nor prayer?

I know that was a lousy poem, but I'm just not that adroit.
But happy birthday to friend and bard - Mr. Peter Benoit!
Update: Melty, he does not use the French pronunciation; he pronounces it as the rhyme implies.
Update 2: That 29 year old is NOT Peter; I was joshing him. I imagine Someone Somewhere turned 29 today, but I don't know who. lol
