Send Them Home

      Send Them Home           August 7, 2013

Send them home to think again
They came to mother Ireland
Why did they come, they hate Ireland so much
March on our streets, never retreat
Bang their drum of hatred, I hate every beat
A planter from wherever to take an Irish home
Burn houses, evict Irish, children alone
Bricks and mortar belong to Irish people
Ignored by the planters, another foreign church steeple
Who cares what hey said, just evict the right people
The children of Ireland lost and alone
Choices were given, burn homes and come home
Parents killed, parents lost, planned future in mind
The actions of the tyrant the world never knew
Who lives with the memory, only a few?
They've been put to death also, resistance means death
Remember the Irish, remember their death
Send them home to think again
They came to mother Ireland

Gerrard McGeachy
