Green Humor Contest

A Pinch of Red and Green

St. Patrick’s Day

They pinch without green then take a sip of beer
Small in size holding on to their pot of gold
Once depicted in red this comes from the old
Then green appeared and they captured all the gold

Short in stature they also can disappear 
while sipping on a glass of ice cold green beer
A symbol of the Irish a four leaf clover shall bring luck
A fairy tale this could be but don’t believe

A pinch you shall receive for we all believe
In the Irish legion of the green Leprechaun
Enjoy this day that we celebrate that falls on Sunday
For on Monday we all go to work saving for our pot of gold

Then the IRS will steal your gold and put you in a pinch
For the IRS is like the Irish Leprechaun only dressed in red
Pretending to be your friend using a four leaf deduction
Thinking your are in the green but putting you in the red

Bobby, your entry went beyond the 15-line limit for the contest, but I still thought it deserved recognition for its originality. Congratulations on your win! There were many great entries and judging is always a challenge. Best wishes, Carolyn

Hi Bobby, A very clever poem and very humorous - Your IRS and our Revenue Receiver (both one and the same), take most of our gold forcing us to work hard to fill up another pot for them to take also! Congratulations on your win Bobby -great poem. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.
