Object No. 100 Decomissioned AK47, 2005

Early January,cold and brisk, 

I lay coughing on a pillar, after a long trip, Belfast to ring, 

I was left drunk with fatigue.

At first just one a distant black dot, 

then a whole fleet believe it or not. 

I sat and gazed, 

at what my eyes could see ten black ships coming, approaching me.

They arrived in the harbour and told to me, 

” one of our ships got shot and sank with ease”.

I fell to my knees and asked 

“just why? that was the ship of Johnny boy oh boy”. 

We filled the van hungry for a Black and Tan, 

I have my ak-47 this is nothing like heaven.

I drove and I drove past gardens with grove. 

Until I reached Donegal, 

hoping to watch the Black and Tans fall.
