Pot of Gold

Post  RichieO on Mon Feb 11 2013, 16:26

I saw a rainbow in the sky
And remembered a time when my Dad he said to me,
"Go find the end of the Rainbow tis wot you'll find is a little man all dressed in Green"
"And why would I want to do that" I say.
"Tis a pot you'll find, full of gold, upon which a little Leprechaun will sit"

Many years did pass me by and Rainbows have shone and gone.
Shades of colour I did but see but no pot of gold for me.

The day did come when i looked upon a rainbow so bright in the light.
Shall I dare, do but find, that pot of gold at the end.

Off I treads towards the colours so bright, across the fields and over the sea to Ireland I journeyed to seek that pot of gold.

Many days of searching did slip pass me by,
Then one day the end came when a little man, all dressed in green,
With his hat, pipe and beard and all.

A Leprechaun, upon which he sat was a pot of black.
"Top of the Morning to you" he did but say "The bottom of the well for you" I did but reply.

Down to the bottom of the well did Leprechaun glide. Then a look into his pot for that gold I did but seek, only to find it full of the Potatoes.

A hearty laugh was heard from the Well, has I Chipped that Pot Of Gold.....!!!

Richie,

I hear chips are being voted in as one of the major food groups, or some such attempt at humor. I enjoyed your prose poem story very much, especially the nicely surprising ending. Thanks for sharing.
