The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

Let us not forget...yet so many do...

Then and Now

 Life moves on and all comes good

When those who suffer believe in truth

Whilst that great disease hyp-ocri-cee

Thrives on the same

Irish hypocrisy is Authoritarian based

They boast of all the good they do

In Africa, Belarus and other Eastern States

But Irish hypocrisy reigns supreme

Whilst the suffering Irish dwell in pain -

We trusted the Nuns and they beat our girls

We trusted the Priests and they raped our boys

We trusted the Politicians and they stole our funds

We trusted our men and they broke our spirits

Women alone suffer

    the sins of the Nuns

    the sins of the Priests

    the sins of the Politicians

    the sins of the "Do Gooders"

    who whisper and titter

    the sins of the "Runaway Fathers"

    who run with glee

God forgive them all, I pray this day,

Thank you my God for me being me.

Barbara...but sad when I was attending counselling in Aoibhneas a women's refuge in North Dublin I gave Helen the lady I believed I had built up trust with for almost ten years copies of my hurts I wrote - it was after I gave her this - my life suddenly changed and I found out that she had passed everything I had written on to Church & State..I wrote it as I was reading about all of the abuse in Ireland.  She questioned me if I was writing a book? - Teri
