St. Patrick’s Day

Let’s lift a pint to Patrick on his day
Let others kiss the Blarney Stone for luck
Like shamrocks, it’s become a bit cliché:
Saint Patrick’s day with clovers, run amok
No leprechaun deserves to be debased
By being caught in bad commercial art
Such travesty deserves to be erased
True rainbow gold is hidden in the heart
The Emerald Isle is more than green or gold
Saint Patrick’s Day does more than just enthrall
Let’s celebrate the Irish, young and old
Let’s celebrate the saintliness of all
Come lift a pint and greet the day with “Cheers!”
Let’s celebrate Saint Patrick’s day for years.
