Walls at Drogheda

by Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

Walls breached
Swords wielded, born from passions
Of the heart
Of hate
Of others
And of others beliefs
Gave birth to murder.

Rights breached
Laws wielded, born from passions
Of revenge
To avenge
Who died when another
Regime gave birth to fundamentalism.

Hatred breached
Flags wielded, born from passions
Of justice
For freedom
For the future
For a land for all
Notion gave birth to republicanism.

Those who wield the sword of hate today
Their kine for the freedom of all may fight...
