'The Weathergirl gets how much?'

Why question life or fate at all?


The Weathergirl has more luck


And she is paid quite well I'm sure


Confusing doesn't begin to describe it.


 


The Pier Head Pub fills with family and friends


My brother Richie home for a short visit


Fourteen years he has been in the states


God, he can't believe all the mad changes.


 


Theatrical stories are passed and great tales retold


Drinks are poured and drained


Flashes go off and hugs received


The time drags like you wouldn't believe.


 


What is it I find so hard about


Being around those I love


Questions, judgment, pitiful frowns


'Look, this is Richie's night, now leave me alone'.


 


Why question life or fate at all?


One answer will never quite fit it


So if you pray, take Sunday and indulge


If not, sure you can always go for a swim.
