Jack Kerouac haikus for St Patrick's Day

A bottle of wine,
a bishop -
Everything is God

Jack Kerouac wasn't Irish but then St Patrick wasn't Irish either.

Haiku (before, during and after) to ease us all emerald green and darkly bottled stout into and eventually out of those Dublin glasses or a New York loving St Patrick's Day with musical memories of an Irish NY Police Band spirit, or wherever, whatever, and however we may choose it to be. God bless us all,-

Elephants munching
on grass - loving
Heads side by side

The stars are racing
real fast
Through the clouds

Well here I am,
2 PM -
What day is it?

Jack Kerouac 1922-1969

  2. Stout sounds good. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  3. It's Tuesday - that information will cost you half a croon!

    Cathy, I think they like to call it porter these days, a bit more upmarket sounding

    John, Yes I agree, it's always good to check out JK & the GV Boys on these special occassions
