Limerick Ode To St. Patrick’s Day — March 17th

Limerick Ode To St. Patrick’s Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

On St. Patrick’s Day join in the fun.
We’re all Irish that day — yes, each one.
So wear green, find a pub,
Eat some cabbagy grub,
And until you’ve drunk beer, you ain’t done.

    Saint Paddie’s day is for wearin’ o’ the green
    Cause everyone’s Irish, or so it would seem
    Be it in a pub, or all alone
    Tis a time to kiss that Blarney stone.
    Though I’m not Irish, I must confess
    I’ll have a few Guinness, and do my best.
    Though not quite a limerick, I’ve come up short
    I’ll have a few more, and salute County Cork.

  2. Reminds me it’s time for the annual Guinness!

    It is curious how many of us search out and often find our Irish roots (often quite distant), and those poor souls without such a connection still need to partake in St. Pat’s day celebration. Thank you for your prolific output of limericks they are a delight.

    Great outpouring of undefined rhyme! That’s more my style!

    In fact, I just posted this spontaneous comment on Facebook which I instantly loved as a “let freedom rhyme” thing:

    I DEFINITELY smell shock and awe in the air. All the signs are there. The pattern recalled from early “blame Iraq” days is right. right there in plain sight! (That’s almost a poem–I’ll have to post it for Mad Kane! LOL!)
