To celebrate the Ressurection...

See this now:

Easter 1916

roads dissapated from
blacktop to
gravel to

Two roads driving through the Emerald Isle parralell to one
or was it X and why?
a perverse axis, perpendicular, split in 
the tumultuous fit?

Its almost like the rising never happened, its
almost like the battle wasn't won.
A bloody easter, a bloody nation,
freedom bought by fusillade and flame, fear flown
from the muzzle of a patriot's gun.

And now a new flag rises in hope of victory and final peace.

It is an Irish banner
a radiant pennon of Green, of
of White,
A flag of dreams for paddies just like me,
waiting for the call to arms, 
the march towards victory.

Clan-na-Gael at your doorstep, baby!
Clan-na-Gael armed and ready!
You can wash that down with a protestant cake!
