Limerick Day: An Ode To California’s Beaches

Getty Huntington Beach Protest

Today, my boss reminded the team – mostly in California – that today was Limerick Day. I thought of the sunshine, the beach protests, and Irish Democracy as mentioned here by Skip, then hit the keyboard…

The people were feeling so glum
Under rules from Gavin Newsom
“To hell with bureaucracy”
“We’ll use Irish democracy”
“Surf’s up let’s go and ride some!”
