Presidential Pink!



See the President's Palace, Taipai,
On some great ceremonious day!
The ladies in pink 
Are making me think
That a festival's now underway.
Their pinkness just can't be denied!
Each one like a bright rosy bride!
'Does good luck?' I muse
'Favour these blushing hues?
Is that why they're full of Pink Pride?
Is the President's favourite shade
The colour of pink lemonade?
Or is it by chance
That the ladies who dance
Are so prettily, pinkly displayed?
Like roses they bloom in the sun
And it looks like a great deal of fun!
Whatever the cause
I like them because
They look happy, when all's said and done.

Paddy was in a quiz show that was showing on TV, 
But the final question befuddled him, as you will quickly see.
'What is the name of a well-known bird that doesn't build a nest?'
This was the tricky question that had put him to the test.
Over and over he'd mulled it but finally, in the end,
He had to admit defeat and say 'Please can I ring a friend?'
So he rang up his good friend Shamus, who was waiting by the phone.
Shamus picked up the phone as soon as he heard the dialling tone.
' It's Paddy' the contestant said ' I've a tricky question here.
I'll say it very slowly and speak up loud and clear.
'What is the name of a well-known bird that doesn't build a nest?'
'Begorrah! That's too easy! Surely you could have guessed!
Said Shamus 'The bird's a cuckoo! You should have known the name!'
Paddy gave the answer and went on to win the game!
He won a lot of money and he wined and dined his friend
For he was now a wealthy man with lots of cash to spend.
'Tell me, Shamus' he said to him 'You weren't too bright in school....
And yet you proved at the right time that you are no-one's fool!
How did you know the answer?'  And didn't he get a shock
When Shamus said
'Well, everyone knows a cuckoo nests in a clock!'
