Happy St. Patrick's Day! Michael Moore on The Green They Steal, The Greed They Wear

Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friends - Celtic and other and cyber!  We tip our hats today to fellow fighting Irishman Michael Moore for his mighty manifesto The Green They Steal, The Greed They Wear. May the spirit of the Irish move us all to unite and take back this country from the thieves and sociopaths that would, like the arrogant, bloody British, glory in pitting green against green. -t.t.

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!!!
