Bignosed Andrew

St Andrew woke up one fine morn
He was feeling at a loss
He looked down and to his dismay
Found he'd been hung up on a cross.

He was really quite annoyed
As it was hurting lots and lots
"I'll have revenge, oy vay" said he
"I'll go and patronise the Scots."

So Andy, a Jewish fisher lad,
Became a famous Celtic saint
But always remember just one thing:
A real life Scot he ain't.
.

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Last few words: 
Andrew is also the patron saint of Ukraine. He was probably taking the day off when the Chernobyl power station blew off.

I guess that it wasn't a surprise or an event that was worthy. On the other hand, you being funny is!
