Antecedents
[January 11, 2008]

My people hail
By famine
(and politics)
From Castleblayney,
County Monaghan,
Da nort a erin
A place witch spawned
Revolutions
And wary trout.

Ancient tribes
Ancestors mine,
By all accounts,
Fought nude
& ferocious,
For this were kept down
By Brits
For variheresies
Like thinking
Being starved was a sin
Not a penance.

Here in America
We’re democrats
Fecking lib’rals
To the righties
Who’d still starve us all
If the court count
Was in their favor.
