SAINT PATRICK’S DAY AFTERMATH

SAINT PATRICK’S DAY AFTERMATH

Now it’s nearly over, have we had enough cheer,

From those silly costumes and the green-dyed beer…

Making lots of money selling Guinness stout—

I remember it’s the good stuff, I hope they didn’t run out!

Now those decorations will go half-price on sale,

Save ’em until next year…one can cheaply regale!

College kids may knuckle down to their study work,

Wouldn’t you know..a few will go back to the bars to twerk!

–Jonathan Caswell

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!
