The Unlikely Rebel

An unlikely rebel, Michael D Higgins just spoke the truth and stood by his people.

Softly spoken, without the braggarts yell,
His words echo far, the truth they tell,
Bring all to their feet, in support or rage
Michael D has the stage…

No offense was meant and none was taken,
Yet the foundations themselves were shaken
As the façade of Northern Ireland they want the world to see
Was shown for what it is, not what it could be.

The oddest of folk took the strangest of positions
Showing the wrongness of all our suppositions
The truth of the issue was clearly seen…
Support for uniting Ireland as an issue is not just Orange and Green!

Have your say...
