Intoxication is in the air, and I wish to get spectacularly drunk like so many of my kinsmen on this day of our nation, a celebration that lacks class and brims with drama, in honor of Saint Patrick.
Paddy's day is certainly not Patty's, better we call it Lá Pádraig. My wishful thinking was not in vain but 'twas vainglorious in its promotion of commotion, debauchery, devotion
and revelry as we make overtures to man the gap of danger. We shall only be ashamed by those who cannot hold their composure, those who don't know how to sesh responsibly; 'ara sure you need to know how to let loose but without
letting go, you need not know what the future holds to stave off despair. Simply hold fast. I hold on to a rose-tinged glass shard of fluorodrone and to a white parachute of pentylone.
In this day and age we do not simply drink our troubles away, stimulants push past the brink of
our limits. It is not a simple day of sessioning, It is a day of reckoning. I should buy some alcohol before the offie closes but I miss smoking **** because it is right to celebrate with something green.
Tell us what is relief on this day? The day of my people, when we drown out our past
Fiddle & Drum we played Beneath the barrel ceiling In the side room at The Laurel Inn At Robin Hood's Bay this evening
A passel of tunes and some craic A bit of Trad Irish nonsense Just two old mates having a laugh Over a pint or two of toxins
No-one else in the room They could hear us maybe next door In the main room with the telly on Waiting for some team to score
Some Jigs & Reels, a slow one or two A few old songs or three Yes, the craic tonight wasn't Hollywood It was the usual documentary
The way we like it The way we like it to be, so The craic tonight It is what it is, so
My pal Milo and I had our usual meet tonight - The 3rd Monday in the Month - in The Laurel, Robin Hood's Bay, WHITBY. Just to have a few hours playing a bit of nonsense and catching up on things. We talk about tunes & arrange them as Sets for later Gigs or bigger Sessions. It's what it is, so.
