One thought on “Irish or Not, Happy Indult Day

  1. THE SHAMROCK BEWILDERED

    Ireland waving the Rainbow flag
    is provoking the Almighty’s Ire
    jubilating, while dressed in drag
    is sailing towards the eternal fire

    Ireland is blowing the retreat
    back to her pre-christian days
    following the devil’s deceit
    marching the wrongful ways

    The Shamrock is withering
    it’s a long way to Tipperary
    it’s slipping and slithering
    on a dangerous itinerary

    St Patrick got rid of the snakes
    they now came back disguised
    as colorful ducks and drakes
    readying Ireland to be chastised

    That’s the world we’re living in
    God’s Laws are pushed aside
    living in the most deadly sin
    but by worldly laws we abide

    Rita Biesemans, May 24 2015 Pentecost

    Come Holy Spirit, Soul of my soul, I adore You, enlighten me, guide me, tell me what to do, give me Your orders. I promise You to submit myself to all that You desire of me, but please let me know Your Will. Amen

    written after Ireland legalized gay marriage
