Covid Days # Covid Ways

A wop bop a loo bop
A lop bamboom
Poor Little Richard
Has just left the room
Bewick and Hooper
And snowy Mute Swan
Children of Lir
And cold Una bhan
Dylan is singing
Of murder most foul
Bealtaine spirits
Are out on the prowl
Huge basking sharks
Off cliffs at Kilkee
No noise pollution
Bombarding the sea
Stones say they’re living
In a ghost town
Shane misses Soho
With rain pissing down
Career agitators
Don’t need a mask
Capricious objectors
In ignorance bask
I wonder what words
From those seven tongues
Would leave Arbour Hill
If they only had lungs?
Outside Carrickfergus
And near Spancill Hill
Bluebells are jingling
As gluttons hunt krill
Behemoth-like airships
Remain in their berths
For now they’re not spewing
Their puke on our earth
I loved to wake up
When the world was all new
To crows in the trees
And O’Donnell Abu
Elfland’s royal princess
Once had a great will
Dunsany’s creation
Flowed off of his quill
The Land of the Youth
By name Tir na nOg
Where Oisin and Niamh
Inspired Boolavogue
Old folks are falling
Their bravery we’ll miss
They once fought the devil
And don’t deserve this.

Ill be back……
