Fancy a chip? Ach, get us a fish.
Okay, no problem.
Only that fateful Saturday afternoon in Oct 93
There occurred another act of Belfast infamy.
Fish and chip please.
At 1.oo clock, two delivery men brush past
banal in their uniforms
Though blindly carrying death, murder, and mayhem
Into an innocent Saturday afternoon.
Their bomb covered tray exploded prematurely
Killing eight innocent customers and a PIRA terrorist.
No one can condone that dastardly wrong on the Shankill Road
a saturaday afternoon,.Innocents asking for a fish and chip blown into eternity.
What justification in evil minds
can carry out such a savage act?
Rebellion, against whom? Workers,
same people as themselves.
No justice in their actions only bloody murder.
All around them innocent people asking,
may I have a fish and chip please.
Do you want salt and vinegar? ach aye, the reply.
Then the premature fireball swept them all away.
23 0f october 1993 another date, set in infamy.
