There sure are a lot of syllables in some of those lines. It reminds me of an oldie:
There was a young lass from Spokane
Whose limericks never would scan.
When someone asked why,
She replied with a sigh,
"It's because I always try to squeeze as many syllables into the last line as ever I possibly can."
Hearty congratulations on the anniversary, even if not on the limerick.
