Luck 'O The Irish

Ah!  Here I am then all snug in my seat.
I've plenty of popcorn and candies to eat.
The previews appeared without any glitch,
And I'm loving it here in my own little niche.
If I want, I can use the seat I'm behind
To put up my feet.  There's no one to mind,
For finding the one empty seat was my goal,
And I'm sitting behind it.  Most others are full.

Oh, no!  What is this?  Some guy just walked in
Right when the movie is just to begin.
No, not toward the back!!  Stay in the middle.
Dang it!  He's here, and his head is not little.
Smack dab in front of me; wish I could yell.
My peaceful retreat has just turned to hell
For, or course, he is half a foot taller than I.
That's luck o' me ancestors Irish. Fie!

    A river flows to sea or to ocean but certainly starts from high hill or mountain. What are flown in that water, certainly current carries them. So, luck in many ways depends on ancestors.Nice philosophy, lovely done my lovely friend. Loved always, bl

    Hahaha Tis so true Petal. I was at a Drifters concert a few years ago and the guy in front was slumping right back in his seat, with one over back, his head leaning right over like he was looking at the ceiling, to make it worse he had long hair that was dangling on my knees. I asked nicely twice, before we had this big bust up in the middle of the theatre lol. Ignorance, that's another thing that annoys me haha. Long, long time since I've seen fie. Take care, Richard
