A funny 60th birthday poem is, "You are too old / For throwing a party / You are too young / To pass the day smugly / You are too old / To wear a birthday cap / But you are too young / To celebrate with a nap / Such is the dilemma / Of being sixty / Welcome to the age / Of perplexity / Happy 60th birthday."
