Nancy Pelosi Read A Poem By Bono Comparing President Zelenskyy To Saint Patrick

March 18, 2022 / Posted by:

If you didn’t overindulge last night celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day but still want the splitting headache and creeping sense of shame, Nancy Pelosi and Bono have got you covered. Yesterday, at the Capitol’s annual Friends of Ireland luncheon, Nancy took the stage to recite a poem by Bono, “a very Irish part of our lives,” addressing the war in Ukraine and proclaiming that President Zelenskyy is the new Saint Patrick. And to make matters even worse for the people of Ukraine, Ireland and America, she followed Bono’s wobbly ballad by inviting Riverdance up to do a little jig. There now, don’t you feel like you drained a bottle of Jameson last night and woke up with a shamrock tattoo on your neck and no idea how it got there?

Standing in a sea of cotton-headed attendees working hard to get their spoons to their mouths as loudly as possible, Nancy recited the lines, “And they struggle for us to be free/From the psycho in this human family/Ireland’s sorrow and pain/Is now the Ukraine” with a straight face. Well, you try finding a rhyme for psycho! Here’s the video. Come for the slant verse, stay for the maniacal clogging!

Come now, there’s no way those dancers are making all that noise with their feet. All that tapping is obviously that psycho Putin trying to get Nancy’s attention so he can surrender. It’s one thing to be hated and reviled by the majority of the world, but not even Putin can endure being on the wrong side of Bono’s mighty poison pen. Here’s the full verse. via Variety:

Oh St. Patrick, he drove out the snakes
With his prayers, but that’s not all it takes
For the snake symbolizes
An evil that rises
And hides in your heart
As it breaks
And the evil has risen my friends
From the darkness that lives in some men
But in sorrow and fear
That’s when saints can appear
To drive out those old snakes once again
And they struggle for us to be free
From the psycho in this human family
Ireland’s sorrow and pain
Is now the Ukraine
And Saint Patrick’s name now Zelenskyy

So I ask you, who among us wouldn’t also risk being trampled by frosted faeries to ensure that it never, ever happens again?
