SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

They either are or they aint;
That’s how I explain a saint.
There are many different saint days;
Celebrated by many people in different ways.
But Saint Patrick’s Day is special as it can be;
For his exceptional holiness of life, you see.
By the Christian Church he is recognized;
For he is a Patron Saint of Ireland, no surprise.
I think lovingly it’s also known as Saint Paddy’s Day;
And celebrated worldwide, with a parade on the way.
It’s observed on March Seventeenth by the Irish;
And, of course, by all other people who wish.
I always think of it as the wearing of the green;
For on Saint Patrick’s Day that is what is seen.
I remember in High School that it was a cinch;
If you weren’t wearing green you’d be pinched.
And it didn’t matter if you were Irish or not;
Without any green, you were bound to get caught.
