Sample -- Wedding toast


We're gathered here today
As Dina marries young Heron,
The one we know as Monkey
Or our little hot cross bun.


They've always had a special bond
A genuine connection;
It grew in friendship's greenhouse
And matured to shared affection.


We wish for them a household
Filled with features they prefer:
A 60-inch TV for him
And thirty cats for her.


Their children will inherit
All that makes them so unique --
Their mother's cooking skills,
Their father's musclebound physique.


We wish for you tomorrows
Bright & hope-filled as today;
May each day hold the promise
Of an eat-your-fill buffet.
