[Birthday boy GEORGE BRIONES, who once served as President of the INTEGRATED BAR OF THE PHILIPPINES-QUEZON CITY CHAPTER (with about 10,000 lawyers as members) is seen in this photo being lauded/praised by Chief Justice LUCAS BERSAMIN (“CJ Bersamin”) during a dining function attended by CJ Bersamin’s colleagues and friends, as being very supportive of the Regional Trial Court judges in Quezon City (during GEORGE’s term as IBP-PREXY), at which dining function, CJ Bersamin introduced him to his (i.e. CJ Bersamin’s) close friends, staff and colleagues.]
GEORGE is a TAUREAN being born on MAY FIVE,
He’s CHARMING, WITTY and is so FULL of LIFE…
CREATIVE, FRUGAL and truly very PRACTICAL;
And a PERFECTIONIST too– that for him, is just NATURAL!
A DEPENDABLE and STABLE PERSON, upon whom one can RELY…
A GOOD FRIEND and COMPANION, and not a SMALL FRY;
He is FOCUSED and DETERMINED, that’s his true indelible MARK;
He’s INTELLIGENT and CURIOUS and is truly so SMART!
Among his more significant POSITIVE TRAITS —
And to whom, one can rely, those in very DIRE STRAITS;
Is his RESOURCEFULNESS and rare brand of FAITHFULNESS,
And those are the traits that brought him much of SUCCESS!
GEORGE is so STUBBORN and as STRONG as a BULL,
That’s why he became GRAND ARCHON at UP Law SCHOOL;
Served too as an ASEC at the DAR,
In GOLF, he’s good, almost always UNDER PAR!
GEORGE is clever and always WITTY,
Admired by BROADS, and at times a bit NAUGHTY…
He at times would have a TALKATIVE DEMEANOR,
That’s when those hearkening GIRLS would ask for MORE!
TAUREANS are said to be possessed with STRONG BUSINESS SENSE,
And SUCCESS in BUSINESS could bring much DOLLARS and CENTS…
But as GEORGE is possessed too with the GIFT OF GAB;
LAWYERING, I feel, is his BENT and his LOVE!
He is Senior Partner of a LAW FIRM,
Which he founded with a classmate and FRIEND…
The LAW FIRM, I learned, specializes on ELECTION…
I guess, with good business skills, GEORGE could dabble too in BUILDING ERECTION!
On this your NATAL DAY, I wish you LONG LIFE and MORE SUCCESS;
Am sure you’ll attain it as you’re full of PROWESS—
For indeed, any DREAM that’s DREAMT to be ACHIEVED…
With HARD WORK as the ingredient, TRIUMPH will surely be FULFILLED!
Those born on May 5, has a lucky number of FIVE…
A fine occasion when birth date and luck have JIBED;
And because today is the 5th of MAY,
Please don’t forget to bet on LOTTO at 5 PM TODAY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGE!!!!
