Wear green, anything green, green will save you For certain - except on non-holy days maybe, For those, a ****** is the best standby Preferably one from an old religion Thus establishing your undoubted innocence And no matter it hampers the shenanigans We are after all preventing lightning.
In the absence of a ******, some silk – Yellow as the Sun and carried in the pocket Out of sight as if it is a secret - Damp it through with a drop of neat Poteen, Drink some yourself to keep the airways clean And never, but never, carry a stick Unless it has a rubber ferrule on the end.
Ireland has a big sky so do look up. Leather shoes are important - don’t wear synthetic - And patterned socks are best turned inside out, Though it must be said of this advisory The ways of lightning are its own to know And no amount of shoe and sock revising Can guarantee your safety on an Irish road.
For the rest advices, I do not hold them to be true - Tried and tested down the generations My ancestors, and my family too, Have always known that lightning prevention Is its own reward, and habit forming. Finally, there are leaflets available for free and As you exit the aircraft please do feel Ireland always takes your safety seriously.
