Saint Patricks Day

Being part Irish I have to admit that yes indeed, I celebrate it. If truly the Irish are lucky you see, I’ll have my green beer and sandwich of brie. I’ll dress in me greens with a button or two that says I am Irish, how about you? I’ll get out me Bodhran and give it some beats; then my tin whistle, I will play while folks eat. I’ll have buttery shortbreads’ and other great treats; and don me tapp’in shoes with their new cleats. While the fiddler bows his old Irish tunes, I may take a moment to have me a croon. I’ll do me a jig or two, for good measure; then politely say, thank’ye, ‘tis been a pleasure. Me ancestors came from that dear Emerald Isle; though they hated to leave, they did it with style.

Really well done, MLK. I visited Ireland was totally impressed by her beauty and people. Got a glimpse of the fine culture.
