OLD DERRY HOTEL BURNS DOWN!
By Clancy O’Lafferty
The Derry News Editor sat at the bar
In the old worn-out Hotel O’Flannigan.
The owner, O’Leary, he spied him afar
And quickly he cozied up side o’ him.
“O’Leary, I’m sorry to hear your hotel
Has burned down and it brings me such sorrow!”
“Thanks for those kind words I hear from you first,
Just remember the fire is tomorrow!”
