My birthday's in July each year,
The same date every time.
When my birthday is tomorrow,
The day before yesterday is prime.
Two weeks after my birthday
The date would always be
A very small square number
Added to a power of three.
If my birthday falls on Sunday
The next Saturday furthermore
Has a date with six factors
And is a multiple of four.
There are only two possibilities
The verses above create.
Choose the smaller of the two
To find my birthday date.
