“Arrow through head” haiku

Wishing Steve Martin
A wild and crazy birthday
He’s 67

Happy birthday, Steve
Some guys have a way with words
Some … oh … not have way!

Sure the guy’s funny
Here’s the true test: Can he do
Balloon animals?!

A Renaissance guy
Comic, author, film actor,
Total banjo stud

Philosophical,
Sophisticated beneath
All the goofy gags

Quite the movie man
“LA Story” to “Roxanne”
Serious roles, too

And “Born Standing Up”
Told us his triumphs, setbacks
In life and show biz

Happy birthday, Steve
Not bad for a guy who was
Born a poor black child
