Plog …. ( Poetry blog)

Skip James # Dylan Thomas # St Patrick

The slick picking style
Of Bluesman Skip James
A man down in Clare
Got a rap of a hames
Jig time and reel time
A few polkas too
Marches and hornpipes
In sweet Killaloe
Welsh Dylan Thomas
Passages and rites
Oh ‘Do not go gentle’
Yes put up a fight
Surfing the waves
In battered Bundoran
An airport in Knock?
You can blame Father Horan
Minding his sheep
On rocky Sliabh Mish
St Pat dreamt of snakes
And eating smoked fish
Farewell to Diego
Maradona that is
A star in the cosmos
A parcel of fizz
Now that was some feast
The loaves and the fishes
To think that the chef
Had only two dishes.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
