Incomprehensible Guiness tale
Dublin town blessings
shaken from the ferry
flattened by the Liffey
took my nine books of poems
to the University of Dublin
the Ad was in the Sheffield Star
not to be missed opportunity
Dublin on the Green
rang across Kenny's Pub
at the Isle of Axholme
Every Saturday night
Singer with an angelic voice
reduce Satan to tears
learnt them all and loved them
East and West homesickness, sniffling together
Guiness lapped the table
washing the chips onto the floor
like the pebbles in the Liffey
then incomprehensible speech sets in-
On a freezing winter's night
blue and purple with cold
shops closed on Liffey's margin edges
sitting on ice-cold, stone window ledges
two homeless begged for coppers
Na, I'd crossed over on a wing and prayer
one put hand to heart, or his pocket
sang songs, accompanied by the other
an evening never to be forgotten
Next day to the Irish Bank
listen to the poets recitation there
left my own poems at the Mayor's office!
The secretary forgot my box of poems
You are enemy alien!
We had nowhere
You came round the camps
And asked us to come to you
-you needed workers
we were clean enough for you-then!
We knew you of old
When we were rich in our world
We bought your wares and wools
And believed in you
-believed in your traditions
But you have betrayed us
After begging us to come and work
Worse than any Russian Czar or Stalin
After being cleared in every possible way
You use us for illegal experiments
They now ask the lab drunks and lechers
Who rape kids and beat their woman
Would you like to 'tense' the victims too?
Only enemy aliens after all, no more
They are from our Colonies,
Superior to you, we owe them
You could spread your opinions around the world
Conversations in the night
Didn't really want to tell
All on monitor and lab scanner
Them--knew--they - would laugh, scorn
"That's the way of the world"
we'll give these two to Harvey for his fame
hugged the secret deep inside of me
cost the ladyship her life
Each year, deeper the lunatics delve
Deeper against the sane and straight sanity
It will be twenty two thousand before we let
The people know, open our secrets and accounts
Will the people be cleverer then or more corrupt?
Till then, there is nowhere else it could hide
Modern technology finds all
My truth, not theirs
They - always - laugh, scorn
Unless you're like -- them
It burst out, my secret, my truth
I just want to Paint, to write not this pain, confusion
It's not this top-coat image that the fudges
World outside wears and smudges
The real truth was, is as we trudge
the sun that touches
Not that one which hangs in the sky
like a floating UFO
The earth that screams in whispers through blades of grass
Tells us, me, I and we belong now
Can never be free ...
we had loved this island for you
It owns totally through sweating slits and dirty papers
Saw, came tearing out of rib cages
They broke the old ladies ribs at your bidding
Men and not these lab females care for the tots..
Like a tormenting Eve
Know thy place
For the first time
The roots of being
They answer let them laugh
I too have seen the fools
Felt their knowing
Parallels of aloneness
So let's call it
Foreign enemy alien over here...
Now let Natalka
The lab are insane and too far from sane
And use such code names constantly
Copy word for word
But the money and fame are good
But I was never at this camp
And they were
Just copy word for word
break 'her' fame
And now a second Natalka
To cover the first Natalka
What ..not using germans anymore
One ironic remark answers
Well, the Royals are germans afterall
So you havn't a chance really...
I have to tell you of my mother's prejudice
One of the Austro- Hungarian empire
These german women did seem pretty terrible
They smoked, wore trousers and did what men did
On the streets
Not our style where a man is a man
And a woman is a woman
Our genes hadn't been muddled then
And as for that madman's sex camps
Rather like the English,
And yes, she found them pretty awful
So we laugh at them, gently mindst..
Poor germans and their Rheingold
Centrally situated in the way of every Army
A country to avoid thank you very much
Or get out of as quickly as pos....
We all have our prejudices apropro
or suffer one way or the other.
The lab's geography has also improved
The bosses use of our conversations
Has turned her into a self educated female
Can't call her a woman
Better Humphrey's description
And the French are still excusing
Giscard was a heavy payment
For the simpleton's sector
But then so was Rabin....
