    There is no other poem which encapsulates The Troubles to me like this one. He was blown to bits out drinking in a curfew others obeyed, three nights after they shot dead the 13 men in Derry. PARAS THIRTEEN, BOGSIDE NIL The walls said. Those were the bad old days and I hope neither my children nor anyone else's ever have to see them return.
