inspired by and shamelessly ripped off of "Easter, 1916" by William Butler Yeats
I have heard from hushed voices
Of connections new and old
Underneath the light of the candle
About the table we were told.

Brought on by discovery
Through a night in the pub
From a disillusioned companion
Around the fire at the club
A terrible beauty had been born
The revolution has begun
Where the motley was once worn
