Nina So Many Times


Today's a birthday of particular note
For several folks who have growth
One's been a cartoonist for many years
Embedding "Nina" so many times in cheer

And indicating by a number next to his name
How many "Ninas" can be found - a kind of game
And if there isn't any more than the one
Then the number's omitted from the fun

But, if you like the game he plays every week
Then study the Hirschfeld drawings you meet
And look for the number beside the name ...
Indicating how many times Nina is part of the train

- Tristram
