One thing I just thought of is that unless the poem is really old or is the original work of you guest it is probably copyrighted. It is illegal to reprint copyrighted material without the permission of the entity that owns the copyright.
I think they did that in The Godfather too (at least the book, I haven't seen the movie). I've never seen it done IRL so I think it would be a waste because a lot of people would have already dropped their cards off at the gift table.
You'll get a note of congratulations from the Obamas, just send the invite to the White House. As for the others it will depend on how their PR people handle these things.

I just don't get it.Stuck in box...It happens for three reasons:1) People think they can't afford a babysitter2) People are so paranoid about what might happen to their children if they aren't always with them that they won't leave them alone3) People are so fused to their children that it takes up 75% or more of their personal identity. These are the people who post ultrasounds in their Facebook profiles, use "soandsosmom" as screen handles, and are always emailing photos of their kids or posting them on social media with a full update of what's going on with their kids at every nanosecond. They absolutely cannot conceive of their children not being with them at all times outside of school or work, even when the children were not invited or the activity is clearly an "adult" one.1) Find an affordable babysitter2) Decline the invitationBut bringing your kids is not one of those options. If you can't find a babysitter you trust and can afford, then you must decline the invitation.
