    Barney is an exceptional poet, a poet's poet. I have listened to him reciting his poem, The Child's Been Radicalised many many times. In my view, he is Ireland's Poet Laureate! ! !

To Spring

Hail the spur that spurned the rush
to bloom midst all the fragrant blossom crush
among the pastel millions of the same
the wee brown stub that played a waiting game

Hail the twig that blossomed far too late
for spring's imprint that it should procreate
took the future into its own hands
though in its nature proved a fruitless stand
