The Middle Ones

Another drip from the ceiling, while seagulls

swirl outside.

They say it builds character, not the kind of illness

From a pen out of ink or a swollen tongue.

 

There will be no digging. The builders

are off, licking 

Their wounds

On golden sands. We remain,

 

Yours faithfully, Irelands problem children.
