Blended Irish

Old traditions
don’t fall from grace
Inhibitions
though, lose their place
in Celtic stocks
mixed with punk rock’s
resounding sound

Ça Fait Rien

Bayou boogie
to the sound of
“Come here, it’s me. 
It’s you I love”
Bon ton roulet
with Beausoleil
Mardi Gras glee

The song “It’s You I Love” by Beausoleil is one of my favorites from the famous Cajun band.
