The Dreaded Fate of Paddy McGee
(This'll hafta do 'til I can come up with somethin' new!  --Hey!  I rhymed! )


I've heard it told that long ago
upon a night like this
that Paddy McGee met his demise -
so let me reminisce......

McGee had fled into the night;
down to the pub he went -
to escape the naggin' of his shrewish wife,
to drink his fill and vent.

He spoke  of horrors beyond belief
that shocked most of his kin.
Paddy's lot in life was hard -
to have married Marry Flynn.

As Paddy wove his tale of woe,
he lifted many a flagon.
Little did poor Paddy know
he was soon to meet a dragon!

'Twas when he left the pub that night,
staggering on his way home,
that in his drunken state o' mind,
Paddy mistakenly killed a gnome.

His bretheren cried out "Ye shall regret
your stupid, careless deed!"
To strike our vengence on your head,
our dragon we have freed!"

No sooner were the gnomes' words out,
when a dragon did appear!
A more frightening visage never was seen
from here to Lankershire!

The dragon had a ghastly scent,
not to mention sulfuric breath. (yick!)
The smell, alone, from that wretched beast
could stink a man to death!!!

Poor Paddy, in his debauched stupor,
could barely manage a scream.
The dragon's'talons grabbed poor McGee
before his fate could be redeemed.

But Paddy's fate was much worse that that -
or so the story goes -
with one monsterously huge inhalation of breath,
Paddy flew up the dragon's nose.

So if you watch the distant skies,
upon a night like this,
you may catch sight of poor Paddy McGee
being boogered to a crisp!

Hi Nef

A most chucklesome tale.  That'll teach poor old Paddy to drink too much and accidentally kill a gnome.

It must have been quite unpleasant up the dragon's nose.  All that snot.

I enjoyed this tale,

Thanks for the read

Nina

Hi Beth,

I'll toast old PM - a most amusing rhyming poem. Well done. Oh hang on, he's been toasted already!

Cheers, James.

Hey Guyses!

Yeah, Poor old Paddy.  I have to admit, this was written on a dare.  I do BAD things when dared.  Shame on me!  

Though, I think that there probably isn't a lot of mucus up a dragon's nose.  I think all that fire would evaporate it. (Ewww! Ick.  That's some BBQ. Bleh!) )

Well, I'm glad to give a chuckle or two and for those of you offended by buggered, just pretend I spelled boogered wrong!  Tee-hee!

Big Hugs,
Nef

(Cleo, I htink I'm still ahead in the typos.  Just had to change chickle to chuckle!)
