To My Brother, A True Teacher

Written by: Joe Murphy

Ah who will follow Seamus 
And walk where he has been
From 28 Mellows Avenue
To football on the green. 

I could not take the road he 
chose
From Finglas to East Wall
A dedicated life to those
Not ready to heed the call

To step outside the comfort 
zone
what they believe is 
preordained
To light the lamp in fertile 
minds
So long entrapped in traditional 
chains
