"TWO ANCESTORS FROM LIMERICK" BY AL DAWSON

The other night when I mentioned on Facebook that the contributions
for this year's Great Genealogy Poetry Challenge were lagging behind
the total for last year's edition, Fb friend Al Dawson wrote this short
humorous genealogy poem on the spur of the moment. I think the
late Terry Thornton would have gotten a chuckle out of this:

Two ancestors from Limerick
Being hard to detect
Were turned into snakes
And banished by Patrick

Am I supposed to tell you that I have posted a poem at Frustrated Genealogist (http://frustratedgenealogist.blogspot.com/2011/11/poem-for-bill-wests-poetry-collection.html)?

I'm not sure I'm up to date on the rules (and I don't truly care). Thank you for triggering this memory of my grandmother's first cousin — "Lide" — and the connection I have made to this poem.
