Erin go Bragh

We have colonised the world,

my countrymen and I,

with departures driven by

famine and persecution,

and by simple curiosity.


Citizens of the world,

we revel in however distant origins

with such exuberant relish

that our hosts,

become infected with it.


They dance in the street with us

to wild, spontaneous music,

and toast in the black stuff

while rivers turn green

in harmonious celebration.


We are a peaceful people.

and will fight anyone

who says we are not!

But only after endless discussion;

we are famous for our blarney.


We are not a hasty tribe.

Mañana is far too rash

for our lexicon;

a thing worth doing

is worth doing tomorrow.

Ahaha - I had no idea you'd written this when I was replying to you on mine ? Ace. What a perfect title too.
