From Britain he came in the past

Who brough on a change that would last

He converted the pagan

But fell short of Canon

So we celebrate by raising a glass!

I originally wrote this on the bus to work for St Patrick's Day, and only realised today that I hadn't actually published it. Oops, my bad...

Ironically, the 'Patron Saint of Ireland' was originally English or Welsh, from Roman ancestry. How's that for absurd?
