...a prelude to St. Paddy's Day




There was a sprite lass from Briton

who wore T-shirts that were tight on;

she’d often display

a snug bustier

and thus cause most folks to frighten.



While treading the road to Cottsworth

I met a young man with great mirth

his laugh was so merry

I wanted to tarry

but was put off by his broad girth



He walked on the streets of Dublin

through Temple Bar, it isn’t a sin;

then he stopped at a pub,

and that was the rub

as he filled up with stout and gin.



There was a large gaggle of geese

who became Lord of the Manor’s feast -

with jams and jellies

they’d float on their bellies

and filled every man to the least.



‘Tis said it can rain cats and dogs

but in water I see only frogs

Don’t be an agitator

you might run into a ‘gator,

as oft’ you can’t tell one from the logs.






‘Tis in Dublin’s fair city she would cry

hoping one and all would come buy

her cockles and muscles

sadly all was a tussle -

uncleanliness caused her to die.




There once was a Saint name of Patrick
who ran all the snakes from the attic
He didn’t stop there
‘til the land it was bare
of the snakes, now we celebrate Patrick!

*The snakes were more than likely paganism that St. Pat eliminated

from Ireland.
