An Ode to the Shamrock Shake

A step through to McDonald’s

Ready for a tasty treat

Looking up and down the menu

Searching for that perfect snack

Between the choices of desserts

What magic do I see?

What minty, green deliciousness?

Brings a tear to my eye

Not chocolate, not vanilla

A shake all to itself

Sprinkles shamrocks up and down

A sign that spring is nearly here

Cold, delicious delight

Sharp mint, smooth dream

Woe be our lives come April

When the shamrock shake is no more
