Colcannon

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     "S-s-say, Dad, do you know what month this is?" Seth hissed at his father.
 
2     Seth's father, Sam Serpent, was reading his newspaper. He looked up at his son. "No, S-s-seth, I do not," Mr. Serpent said. "Is it s-s-some kind of s-s-special month?"
 
3     "My teacher s-s-said it is Irish-American Heritage Month. We are going to have a party on March 17. We will all wear green. We will make shamrocks-s-s. We will read Irish fairy tales. Then we will have a big lunch. All the food will be Irish. All the s-s-students-s-s will bring s-s-something. I will take colcannon. What is colcannon, anyway?"
 
4     Mr. Serpent looked as if his head was going to explode. He was very angry. His eyes turned red. He waved his tail around.
 
5     "How dare they even think about Irish people? S-s-serpents-s-s do not like Irish people. And they do not like S-s-saint Patrick, either," he hissed. His tongue flicked out.
 
6     "Why?" Seth asked.
 
7     Mr. Serpent said, "A very long time ago there were many of us-s-s in Ireland. It was a very good place to live. There was plenty of food. There was lots-s-s of tall grass-s-s to hide in. S-s-serpents-s-s were very happy there. Then a man named S-s-saint Patrick came. He hated all s-s-snakes-s-s and s-s-serpents-s-s."
 
8     "Did you ever s-s-see him?" Seth asked.
