The evidence

I told ye I'd put a poem or two in a shop today... and I wasn't fibbing.

First - here's the lookout

And now three from me

By the pens there's

International, it's so fashionable
Grab a pen and act irrational
Fun things left in odd type places
Hope to brighten stranger's faces

Then beside the bread - first ever IPYPIASM as gaeilge

Is feidir grá a fháil
In aice len arán
Is fiú do aimsir a thógaint
Ag léamh nó ag scríomh dán

Love can be found
beside the bread
It's worth taking time
to read or write a poem
- and it rhymes when it's in Irish - that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

and then near the apples - not the first time I've seen them  IPYPIASM'd

Fresh as your smile
On another Christmas day
Your "grandeur" calls, your style
Your dignatory sway
I don't think you've gone away

Which all brings us to the new grand total of 

Scotland 11
Ireland 10
RoW 0

Anyway, hope you all have a very relaxing day tomorrow and the man in red, if he's coming to you, is generous with his offerings.

Oh well done, that cushion! Surely deserves an extra point for bilingualism?
