Irish Night, alright...

A row was held for the camp of Alexander
a row was heard for miles along the water;
The room was spare, the crowd was barren
the souls were there, but without warrant;
Quite a stew and quite a pickle
made us all a wee bit fickle;
The band was lame, the dancing dames
set the crowded room aflame, then...
the bagpipes came! "Why, they're not even Irish!" said Flaherty,
"...and they drink scotch, not whiskey!"
They left a bloomin' boomin' in me 'ead
that echoed to the Kingdom of the Dead!
50/50 - half a chance, to win a date with Father Finn,
get meself plastered and confess me sins;
Dare I start a feud without the words
'bout Dylan Thomas and Robbie Burns?
"Bildungromans!" I said.
Lucky Luke was undecided...?
Sally-Sue or maybe Iris; Katherine won the lottery,
to save the old school plottery;
Clayton was a gentleman, buying drinks for the ladies
and chatting up the men,
Gordon on Gordon came and went,
came by himself, and left with a brunette
to celebrate his ninety-first birthday in his bed,
"Me beating heart be still!" I said;
So i had a Mac'Guiness stout, instead...
snuck out the back, and went home to bed
