A Poem 6 – 10 - ‘38The following is a poem which I heard from my companions.What’s the news, what’s the news?
De Valera sold his shoes,
To buy ammunition for his men..He was walking up the steps,
When he fell and broke his specs.
And the coward by little beggar ran away.He was eating currant bun,
When he heard an English gun.
And the coward by little beggar ran away.James Carroll (34)
