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!
