>Oh my brothers! napowrimo #24


I shall stick my hand through the hole

You may cut it off

You may grasp it as a sign of peace

Oh Saint Patrick’s Cathedral why do you do me wrong

Ormondes and Kildares

1492 it was always a time for war and strife

Bombings don’t end it, do they?

Now, then, when

What did we learn?

“Give peace a chance”
