Born Upon 'th Gaelic Winds 'o Kellenwood Bay...

So, tell me Mum, did'ya see th spark?
'Aye, lad...seems 'twas only yest'rday,
'uv that light that split th' bloody bark
whin' th' stork' touch'd Kellenwood Bay.

Carry'd-on, we did, that winded morn,
for, in th' hands of Doctor O'Shay-
Brigette O'Neil pass'd her first borne
memb'r, mum, th' fifes, how they played?

Th'm gaelic whisps, 'ow they spun their chords
fer' th' lassie babe jus' borne,
an', aye th' orbs of nights accord
kept eyes on th' wind 'til next dawn.

An, dont'cha dare, sweep yer broom-stick gust
'round th' halo 'uv this God-Kissed lass,
'cuz sh'uld we see a speck uv'ya' wind-kicked dust-
we'll be forc'd t' kick yo'r damn ass!

Ahhh, buh ', Gaelic Wind y'u know we luv' ya' too,
'tis jus' a special day, if ya will;
that we ask ya' t' allay yer thrusty shoo,
keep yer' prowess high 'n still.

An' now forty-three years 'av pass'd,
Brigette O', now a grandma of eight;
Seems th' Celtic torch'az surely pass'd
Like a train on tracks without freight!

So it goes without much more sayin'
that deliverin' Life for Doctor O'Shay
wuz' o' poker han' worth 'o playin' -
Many 'straights' in Kellenwood Bay!

An' mum, 'tis older, wiser...stays young,
sometimes she still kicks-up a reel; ,
'cuz truth be told that grandma 'n mum
both be Kellenwoods Brigette O'Neill!
