Erin Go Braugh...

Its that day again,

When everyone is Irish,

No matter your background,

Do I hear a great big amen…?


I find no fault in a day honoring St. Paddy,

No difference it is than Christmas,

Take off the day from work,

Celebrate like you were from that beautiful country,

Drink that dark beer but in the end don’t go too berserk…                


Happy St. Patrick’s day to those who do celebrate…

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Ed. Kissing the Blarney and loving it! Sending my greetings and shamrock dog biscuits to Rufuz and a yard of green beer to you from atop a row of rum kegs perched Irish lesbians singing a capella!

Or as they say on the Emerald Isle - Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit!
