Mouth Of Flowers

Two years to the day it was
Two years since Swanzy died
Michael Collins met his end
Killed by his own side

Ireland in those troubled times
Independence civil war
So many brutalised and killed
– Worth the fighting for?

So many deaths have come
Since then
Each side pushed to the brink
May wiser kinder thoughts prevail
Talk and let us think

Live by the sword you die by the sword
Words in Gethsemane
By the one who also said
Love your enemy
