sionnach commented on the word ireland
THE Irishman is never quiteContented with his little lot;He 's ever thirsting for a fight,A grievance he has always got;And all his energy is bentOn trying not to pay his rent.He lives upon a frugal fare(The few potatoes that he digs),And hospitably loves to shareHis bedroom with his wife and pigs ;But cannot settle even here,And gets evicted once a year.In order to amuse himself,At any time when things are slack, He takes his gun down from the shelfAnd shoots a landlord in the back; If he is lucky in the chase, He may contrive to bag a brace.MORALProcure a grievance and a gunAnd you can have no end of fun. (Harry Graham : Baby's Baedeker)
