Another white Slave
Being laid to Rest
In a Communal Grave
Of the Sisters of Our
Lady of Charity...
A captured white Slave
Bound in Slavery until Death...
Perhaps too Broken
By years of Hard
Labour and Beatings
From the unholy Hand
Perhaps Told Again
And Again that No one
Wants her and No one
Cares - Perhaps, Perhaps,
We may ask and We
May Plead...
The reality is That
The Sisters of Our Lady of
Charity told Hold of
This Irish woman's Life
To hold in Slavery
'Till Death do they Part...
Her name withheld
As The Sisters of Our
Lady of Charity
Condemn this Woman
To a communal Grave
Denying her, her own
Place of Final Rest
Clearly showing
Her name, age and Date
Was The Sisters of Our
Lady of Charity's Final
To this Irish White Slave..
Oh Angels of Love
Oh Angels of Care
Gather around This
Irish White Slave and
Grant her Wings of Freedom
So that at last her Spirit
Can be Free...To soar
To the Heavens where
This Irish White Slave
Can be laid to Rest
With Angels of Love
In Heaven Above.....
It brings Tears to my eyes
To Know
That this worn out Woman
Went to her Death
A lonely White Slave
Another Shameful Act
of Church and State!
