The leprechaun’s friendship
With a hop; Skip and a jump,
He sat his wee arse on a stump.
A leprechaun short and plump,
He smiled for he was no grump.
With a grin, eyes filled with guile,
A chance to earn my golden pile!
All you must do is sit a while,
Gold can be won with a smile.
He stated its “company” I’m wanting,
Purchased with the gold I’m flaunting.
Leprechaun’s life is quite daunting
I sat listening as he told his tale,
The gold was mine I couldn’t fail.
Eyes large gazing upon that pail,
Hop, skip jump down the trail.
Wee leprechaun hollered with glee;
A black day! When you can fool me.
Friendship was what I needed, you see?
But it can’t be bought it’s free,
