Governments legacy

This city 
has a spire 
in the middle, 
the needle 
of Ireland's despair, 
cost us money 
and lots of our riches, 
this is our city so fair, 

a government 
in ruling 
our ruination, 
as the clock 
in the Liffey 
Stood still, 
their time 
is running out, 
a country so wild , 
yet so beautiful, 

yet this is all 
we have got, 
rocked by mass 
unemployment, 
emigration heavy 
on everyone's heart. 

A government yes 
They destroyed us, 
as they made us pay 
For what they ill got, 

bailing out these 
so called scrooges, 
fair is the state 
of our nation , 
poor in everyone's heart, 
this is the state 
of our country 

Rich and peasants 
miles apart, 
gambling 
our children's futures, 
as job creation, 
plays the necessary part, 
now this is the state 
of our country, 
Ireland 
A nation 
in despair

    This was very informative to me. I had no idea of the standing in Ireland and of its government. It is a sad thing hearing about the corruption and despair of countries because of who rules them. Great impact poem. I wish you well in all that you do. Always, Laura
