Poems of Barney Rooney

The McAlpine Lies

Praise the metal of the man
sheathed his sword when he had power in hand
endured the smear for all of 20 years
since some scally nailed the notice to his door
that sirs abused these children of the poor

Now the McAlpine lies
at peace among his friends
they merry danced to a ring a rosy end

[Hata Bildir]
