For TP

Our friendship defined
By a series of firsts
Not second at all
In fact the obverse

The first founding member
Of the L-G-M-H-A
And among the first Fish
Whom on dry land flopped and flayed

You made your first million
You were first to be wed
You were first with four kids
The first to homestead

Your collection of firsts
Are all pretty nifty
But the one least begrudged:
You’re (almost) first to hit 50.
