 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

Being Irish all my life
I was given a DNA test
I am what I am or so I thought
I  don't bow to the king and queen
Though I have been to Canada
Have no interest in going to England
I have teased the wife about being English
So she put the results on my desk
Circled in my green blood probably relish
And on St Patrick day
She has no morals and bows to the queen
Circled, Ethnicity Estimate
I am 43 percent Great Britain
27 percent Ireland
30 percent other regions
Mom's maiden name was Soash
I assumed the was native Indian
It had to be Grandma she spent time In Canada
Owned a Scottish Terrier and drank weak tea
No more blood tests for me
I drink Jim Beam or Jamison Irish whiskey on the rocks
Tea time is with a driver and hitting golf balls
I  became a poet when i realized there was nothing else I could do
That how you became a poet too?
