O’ Malley’s Day off ~ #MarchWriting #themagicshop #St.Patsday

Everyone knew of Douglas O’ Malley

The best bartender throughout all of the valley

He mixed any drink with just the right amount of booze

He knew every concoction that a customer would choose

With the speed of a cheetah, he had empty glasses refilled

Miraculously never having a single drop spilled

He showed up every day for his beloved vocation

Never calling out sick or taking a vacation

Ironically, the one time that Douglas would change his hardworking ways

He refused to tend bar on his beloved St. Patrick’s day

O’ Malley’s reasoning was that although his mixing skills were indeed God-given

But, to not drink himself on that March day would be against his religion
