The Ballinderry Sword

By Emma O'Hora, 1st year.

Object No. 36 Ballinderry sword, mid-ninth century
Ciara O'Hora

One fatal swing was all it took

To cut out the fearsome screaming

To wipe away the vicious look

To cease the perpetual beating

 

One fatal swing was all it took

To serve a wound most severe

To wipe away the vicious look

But the battle is only beginning here

 

One fatal swing was all it took

In the solid grip of barbarian hands

To wipe away the vicious look

In this brutal clash of clans

 

One fatal swing was all it took

From a sword covered in engravings

To wipe away the vicious look

To raise the victorious cravings

 

One fatal swing was all it took

To end this vicious campaign

To wipe away the vicious look

To end the opponent’s reign
