Strange sign on pavement as I passed
The wording caught my eye – I gasped
High class café – won a prize
Promotion in another guise.
For ”Weddings, and Wakes” it clearly said
And "Wurthdays" too – such smart street cred
The neologism made me smile
Australia has a special style.
But is a wurthday once a year?
Each day has true worth, that’s clear
Cappuccino with a friend inside;
How many ‘’wurthdays” have you tried?
