PATRICIAN HAIKUS ARE BEST – GREAT FUN !

Mad bishop, Patrick,
He baptized all iguanas,
Penguins, too; lemmings !

Patrick was hard stuff
Hard his slave’s pig and sheep stick
Yet he died crying

Cruach Phádraig –
fanann na seandéithe
glan uirthi

Covered their faces
On fasting Patrick´s Mountain
Noone wants old gods

It is a black wind
High up on Cruach Phádraig
Those gods´ faces cut

Swoosh down the mountain
Cowed gods, beaten, forgotten
By the newly washed

Adze-head Patrick
Whacked the mountain with his stick
All gods ran away ( F. Mac Culo )
