Famine? Holocaust
This is my painting of how I saw in my mind/spirit the decimation of Irish through deliberate genocidal strategies. I wrote the poem to goes with it. Clank & drag - chains of history - Poundings of hate - Destiny & Fate the truth - the truth is no mystery Famine? No, it was Holocaust It was genocide Honor those who long lie buried in the sod Here is to those who died guts twisted with starvation cadaver faces eyes burning orbs of despair crying out to a silent God some with grass juice trickling out of their tormented mouths and some eating bark off the trees They fell by the roadside stench of rotting flesh bodies piling up all around thousands died without a sound mass graves mass graves mass graves Genocidal strategies Let rage take to the stage & dance a deadman's jig Rattling bones of schisms and prisons Let the dead rise up & spit on the proffered cup of pseudo justice & toxic lies Famine? No - it was Holocaust Will they ever tell the truth? Will they ever tell the truth? A long time ago I stood on my land and felt the river of blood and sorrows rise up inside me & I opened my mouth to scream but no sound came out so I wrote this to make some noise *********************************************** "O bless me Father for I have sinned..." O Forgive me Father for telling it how it was/is Those bastards, yes bastards, knew what they were doing *********************************************** My Mother had a fear of poverty like her Mother that generational fear based on factual events that trickles on down into ones psyche My Mother was frugal and careful and nothing must be wasted espicially not food... My Mother was right when she told me a few years before she died "This world it be all about money just money" Who wants to be poor and subjugated?
