The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

Tom Higgins - his words - tell it all - oppression and lies - captured in the Spoken Word -

I am posting the following with the kind permission of Poet Tom Higgins who writes on Global Writers...I think Tom captures it all! Thank you Tom Higgins..

Tom Higgins

I wrote some words
Just words.
The response I got
To those words
Which were only words
Was not
What I expected.
The words they used
To respond to mine
Were infected
With hatred for
The words I used
To pillory the puppeteers,
Those masters
Of the millennia
The creators of
The tears
That fall every day
In our lands,
And in those of many
Who are far away
From where they hide
And plot and scheme
To destroy a nation's
Future as they decide
How to turn a dream
Into a nightmare
As they divide
The spoils,
Each taking his share.
