 From my mind

Wee Irish Green Fingers

Me Mammy grew shamrock in a Pee Pot she tended it every day
Saying it was a piece of old Ireland caring for it in her own little way.
She gave blarney to it every morning and noon, said a wee prayer every night
The shamrock must have loved this for it grew and flourished to her delight.

Standing pride and place in its piddle pot, growing shades of greenest green
From postman to vicar shown off like the crown jewels by a proud Irish Queen.
Asked what was her growing secret? A real mystery what could this secret be?
Her saying, like every good Irish man, shamrock loves blether and a good old cup of tea.

Derrick David Henderson

A note for the reader.
Shamrock grows in bog land, English slang for toilet is Bog.
Bog = Pee Potů.:O)
