Shamrock > Clover
Today, I bought a lucky shamrock
or so I thought
until I got to the checkout
where the clerk told me it was a sell out
not a real shamrock, but a four-leaf clover
the real thing has never come over
from the fair isle of Erin
and all the while, that plant had us starin’
four leaf clovers bring luck too, I’d say
can’t you remember how in childhood they were fey?
although my clover did not come over from the fair green isle
I have now had it quite a while
but it has brought me only bad luck
and that really sucks.
