Of sponsoring St. Patrick's Day,
Having failed to have swayed
Those who run the parade
To authorize floats that are gay.
It's a green of a diff'rent complexion
That causes the brewer's objection,
As the times, they have changed
And hence rearranged
The sponsorship fiscal projection.
It's not that they don't see the profit
In St. Paddy's, and what they make off it;
It's how they appraise
The changing mores
Of the many straight drinkers who quaff it.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to those who wear the green, as well as all the other colors of the rainbow.
