A truth about me:
Not a drop of Irish blood
Runs in my body.

Green not my color.
Why celebrate St. Paddy?
Never felt compelled.

So why do I have
On the menu for tonight
Corned beef and cabbage?

But my kids’ father–
Wolverine is part Irish!
Yes, mixed kids we have.

Today for my kids
I will say “Erin Go Bragh!”
As they blink at me.
