Autumn 1939

McFadden hawked "Peace News" in Royal Avenue,
Outraged the moon-faced citizens.
END THE WAR! PEACE NOW!

While I was buying stamps in the G.P.O.
For frantic letters to Irene.
END THE WAR! PEACE NOW!

McFadden showed me his singing poems.
I said : "John Keats is dead".
END THE WAR! PEACE NOW!

Leaves choked the Stranmillis gutters,
Slow fuses smouldered up the Falls.
END THE WAR! PEACE NOW!

Robert Greacen

5th May '74
