“A-WEARING OF GREEN”

A-WEARING OF GREEN

March seventeenth–St. Patrick’s Day–

Everyone’s Irish in some way…

Funny hats, fake  beards,

Cultural mayhem every year.

A lot that is “Irish” isn’t at all,

Just made-up parts of the whole “falderal”…

The real stories in flannel-graph form

Don’t meet with favor with a partying drone.

So we dress up silly and eat corned beef,

Get gas from the cabbage and cry for relief…

We’re in fine fettle for a line dance or two

Finding out more things the Irish would do!
