Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day

The day of the shamrock, everyone decked out in green
Some people wear outlandish outfits causing quite the scene
From corned-beef hash, Irish whiskey and Guinness all around
It all seems a little contrived I have found

From the wearing of green, to the pinch if without
To green beer in every bar from lager to stout
Kiss me I’m Irish, the buttons that read
So proudly displayed for all those in need

Traditions we follow some reasons forgotten why
The Leprechaun, the snakes out Ireland and of course Shepard’s Pie
Rivers the color of emerald, celebrating the patron saint
Some of us who truly are part Irish and even those who aint

Can agree that fellowship with the ones you love
Is far greater than being alone pretending to be above
The beliefs of others no need to feel you are right
So open up the tap my friend and let us share a pint

Sláinte

Peace Be With You!

More to come…
