    Post Saint Patricks day - A seasonal rant.

    I say the same thing every single year. Why do poeple who are not Christians and not Irish celebrate this *shite? I mean I dont bath in green rivers, walk mountains barefoot or shave my head and wear an Orange cardigan? Oh its money for us? Really? So how can New York for eg make money for us? In fact it costs us money me thinks. I mean Irish holidays seem to be for everyone nowadays. I mean can you imagine some guy from the foothills of the Pakistan / Indian border. Lets call him Karsmha. So heres Karsmha, standing there watching the green parade, his republican tats only matched by the glow of his Celtic jersey. Common ffs. Where does this shit end eh?

    * I never really understood this parade anyway? Oh its for kids? Really? The kids are the adults ffs. I remember being dragged to this crap and I looked at Irish adults, grown men and women and thought "what are you doing?" I mean look at the fuckin thing? Grown adults pushing strange implements and making a whole load of what can only be described as noise waving at equally retarded adults who wave back?????????? People say fuck the parade, you can get pissed. Just as well isnt it? I mean Id get grossly pissed if I was tortured looking at rubbish like this.

    thanks for reading,
    Westside.

    Wipe it out! Irish Tourism is no longer An Advertisement By and For "Guinness Products"
    Bring on "The Wild Atlantic" The Glens of Antrim, The Great Little local Themed Hostals,
    Healthy Proud Open little Island, far the rushing European Main Land.

    Hail, glorious St. Patrick, dear saint of our isle,
    On us thy poor children bestow a sweet smile;
    And now thou art high in the mansions above,
    On Erin's green valleys look down in thy love.

    (optional repeat)
    On Erin's green valleys, on Erin's green valleys,
    On Erin's green valleys look down in thy love.

    Hail, glorious St. Patrick, thy words were once strong
    Against Satan's wiles and a heretic throng;
    Not less is thy might where in Heaven thou art;
    Oh, come to our aid, in our battle take part!

    In a war against sin, in the fight for the faith,
    Dear Saint, may thy children resist to the death;
    May their strength be in meekness, in penance, and prayer,
    Their banner the Cross, which they glory to bear.

    Thy people, now exiles on many a shore,
    Shall love and revere thee till time be no more;
    And the fire thou hast kindled shall ever burn bright,
    Its warmth undiminished, undying its light.

    Ever bless and defend the sweet land of our birth,
    Where the shamrock still blooms as when thou wert on earth,
    And our hearts shall yet burn, wherever we roam,
    For God and St. Patrick, and our native home.
    Seek and you shall find!
