St. Patrick’s Day

I do not like green eggs and ham
But I’ll eat them today
To celebrate an Irish saint
Who made snakes go away
I’m full of pride, and festive joy
But missed it by an inch
I forgot to wear a bit of green
And I keep getting pinched
In truth, I’m feeling kinda low
It’s getting pretty old
But hey–there goes a leprechaun!
Aw yeah, here comes by gold…
