WE DIDN’T HAVE BOILED DINNER!

WE DIDN’T HAVE BOILED DINNER!

While honoring the Irish, alas,

We’re prone to too much gas…

And acid reflux

Too easily bucks,

The resulting looseness is crass.

My wife and I have foregone

Boiled dinner to feast upon…

The salt alone

We shouldn’t bring home,

‘Though tasty, we’re better off with none!

We salute our Irish ancestors,

Of which are just mine that we’re aware…

Hibernian pride

Swells inside,

But having boiled dinner–we don’t dare!
