    awful poem: despicable human being, using pure subterfuge
    he was a freemason scumbag, a member of the ascendancy and a spurned lover

    tis brilliant alright.
    makes me wonder about Ireland now and his Ireland, as he saw it anyway, back in those days.

    What a superlative piece by such a consummate writer.
