St. Patrick's Day -- In Retrospect - A poem

Scenario, Our House; 
St. Patrick's Day Morning 

Papa, small voice had said

I'm coming over soon
Saturday, quite common
You be dressed, I'll be there 
Daughter then, Mimi texted  

Kara's coming over?
She wants to pinch Papa
Oh, for sure he'll wear blue
Hurry, change your clothes, now
Granddaughter's coming here
She wants to pinch you 

You can't wear that green shirt

Little girls are supposed

Supposed to pinch Papas
'Cause they're not wearing green

Doff green, switch to blue shirt
Ring, ring, ring -- at the door
I'll run and hide from her
She can find me to pinch
Find me that she soon did

Stand still Papa (hug, hug)
(Then a pinch, and one more)
Papas are made to pinch 

Pinch them, St. Patrick's Day

Didn't I pinch you good
But you can't pinch me back
Because I'm wearing green
Nah nah nananah (smile)

Beginning, happy day

St. Patrick's day morning

At our house

Luckily my granddaughter is not into pinching or chasing around thank goodness. What a delightful poem this is.
