from "The Roses Are Red Diaries"
by 2Truthy

Roses Are Red
On St. Patrick's Day
I Dye Them All Green
And Give Them Away

To Friends With an Accent
Oh, Irish for One or
Another Who's Polish
Like Pat, Just for Fun

But When We All Gather
For Corned Beef and Cabbage
With Noses Pinched Tightly
We'll Toast Charlie Babbage

To Whom We Are Grateful
For A Model Invention
A Kind of Computer
That Luddites Don't Mention

Yet With It/Without It
Should We Be In Awe
Is The Modern Computer
The Best Thing We

Ah Yes, Back To Cabbage --
And Old Charlie Babbage
For Without Chuck I trust
This Poem Is A Bust!

If We Make it Alive
With This Shuck and Jive
And The Green Beer Starts Flowing
Then This We'll Be Knowing

On St. Paddie's Day
While Your Heart's Are All Gay---
And the Emerald Isle Glows
Singing Magical Prose

And Others Around You
That Mean Something Dear
And The One's Who Have Left
Who You Still Wish Were Here...

T'is A Cyberspace Jingle
And A Best Thought Or Two
For The Luck O' The Irish
To Find And Keep You!!!
