Busking # Bram Stoker.

The sea trickling over
Antrim’s bright shingle
Fungie is leaping
For joy down in Dingle
Home are the trawlers
In old Killybegs
Barefooted children
Go searching for eggs
I was born in a place
Called Baile na nGabhar
Goatstown in English
A treat every hour
Trekking today
Through Dublin’s fair city
We tossed a few coins
When one sang a ditty
Lovely refreshments
Straight from the fridge
Before crossing over
The Halfpenny Bridge
Down by the Dodder
Some chaps playing poker
One was a vampire
A friend of Bram Stoker
To Pakenham Hall
Some day I must go
Where gorgeous Miss Edgeworth
Tied up her bow.

Won’t be long..Sláinte !
