    Verse and Worse

    Deaglán de Bréadún

    Consensus?
    Why don’t we come to our senses?
    That’s what Fianna Fáil are saying
    ‘Cos down on their knees they are praying.
    But for what?
    The future of every tiny tot
    Or just their own place in the top spot?

      Is this your own prose deaglan or who should we be crediting for it?

      Seamus Heaney eat your heart out…! Don’t give up the day job..!

    • All my own work. You can sing it to the tune of The Eagles’ “Desperado”. Makes W.B. Yeats look like a poet :-)

      I know its in bad taste to make comparisons to WW2 , but for anyone that saw the movie Downfall set in Hitler’s bunker , how could otherwise intelligent men , generals and the like , stay to the bitter end, and gamble the fate of their people? , in another movie Battle of the Bulge I think, the dutiful sergeant berates the tank commander by asking him how many sons will need to die so that he can keep his uniform?
      Maybe Macbeth had it right, “I am in blood Stepp’d in so far, that, should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o’er.”
      Either way , get the popcorn out and watch the next few years unfold, should be interesting (in a Chinese curse kind of way)

      @1 Prose..? Who knows…!

      ‘A Consensus means that everyone says collectively what no-one believes indiviually’…
