Happy St. Patrick's Day

A poem to enjoy with your corned beef & cabbage.


She was about to chop the head
In half,
But I made her reconsider
By telling her:
"Cabbage symbolizes mysterious love."

Or so said one Charles Fourier,
Who said many other strange and wonderful things,
So that people called him mad behind his back.

Whereupon I kissed the back of her neck
Ever so gently.

Whereupon she cut the cabbage in two
With a single stroke of her knife.

--Charles Simic
