It’s unnerving traveling through town
up-stairs on the bus getting eyeballed
by the righteous. Subsumed the sacred
heart they have knowing right they can
prick a conscience ruin a bus ride reach
the electorate. Newspapers magazines
radio television quick political broadcasts
before/during/after the Angelus then another
On after the news. At full capacity
and still the majority ignore these mediums
hence the placards them blaguards out to get us.
While the windows to our soul let in the thousand
words they make a shite of Bray with their plastic
stares hanging in the air even on the seafront
soiling the sunrise.
