Not one spittoon in Brigadoon!
Now, there´s sommat wrong with that,
I muttered, coughed and spat,
I only ask for this one boon!

Just be careful where you tread!
Even the roaches  ‘ere have fled.
Do we have to live in a sty?
I´ll spit in that dirty pig´s eye.

Ma raised us better than this!
And where does one take a piss?
´t Is a sorry state of affairs:
These filthy leprechauns’ lairs.

Not a place to bring a lady.
Not even one-eyed Sady!
A´right, call me lowlife loon,
But bring me a friggin´ spittoon!

  2. Perfect pitch, cadence,
    absolute astonishment, urgent
    forthright utterance
    from the mouth of the imp

    A quick realization
    by mom, jaw dropped,
    that her hands were Kelly green
    and it wouldn’t wash out
    at least not right away.

    “No mommy, I didn’t do it;
    it was the leprechauns!!”

    And so it was, those rascals
    who made her hands green
    (and anything she touched
    while they were yet wet)
