Derek Mahon # Eddie Van Halen # Barney

The commander in chief
Has met with corona
It has no respect
For rank or persona
Poet Derek Mahon
Walked through the gate
A list of fine poems
We shall ruminate
The vixen-like shrieks
Of piper Moloney
Aided on high
By dapper Chris Droney
Rhythm and blues
The whole nine yards
Preaching Phil Harris
And one deck of cards
Out for revenge
Devouring each rogue
Three Black and Tans
One did malavogue
White haired Joe Biden
And big Donald Trump
Eddie Van Halen
You might as well Jump
An alien came down
And raised his antennas
On hearing the tinkling
Of Barney McKenna.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
