The Luck of the Irish

A leprechaun looking for gold
'neath the shimmering shamrocks of olde
      (with the luck of a Gael)
      found ten bottles of ale
somewhat green as if covered with mould.

    You got me laughing with this one! So, we know that some mold can make us sick, but when it's green it has to be good.

    You got me to chuckle! A green bottle of ale would taste really good right now!

    Hi Terry Just dropping by to see how you are. Empty to the bone, those bottles i'm sure. May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows your dead. As always, I run very deep. Xo

    I hope he doesn't drink it, but you know what they say about desperate times! A clever limerick, Terry...sending a hug and shamrock for good luck! Rhonda
