The Luck Of The Irish

A famine, then its aftermath
Happened between ’45 & ‘51
Caused initially by a spud blight
One potato, two potato, three potato more.

Primary food source sacrificed
Deadly effect on the Irish population
Famine related diseases – over one million died
One potato, two potato, three potato more.

Another one million living headed for other shores
Culture & origins changed forever
Long-term negative effects on Irish traditions
One potato, two potato, three potato more.

First came dependency, then subdivisions
Followed by starvation & ...

Goodbye

The sun has set upon our make believe friendship
You never really took a chance to know me and now I have parted
The indications are strong that I will never return
For there is a whisper in the air of your promises unkept

The untruths heaved-up, hung loaded over any beliefs
Your unwritten words scattered and never reached me
I would never have the chance to see or read them
Yet I was willing to lay down my emotions - they are now silent

[Hata Bildir]
