The wearing of the green, they say,
on this, St. Patrick’s Day,
should bring a spot of luck to those
with green about their clothes.
My shirt has many shamrocks,
same color are my socks;
but, if you can’t see these greens,
just look for emerald jeans!
If you think I’ve overdone it–
perhaps, well just a bit;
though not born a bit ‘o Irish,
I think if I’m more greenish,
my chances should be greater
of having good luck later.
