I have lived in important places times When

I have lived in important places times
When great events were decided who owned
That half a rood of rock a no man""s land
Surrounded by our pitchfork armed claims.
I heard the Duffys shouting "Damn your soul"
And old McCabe stripped to the waist seen
Step the plot defying blue cast steel—
"Here is the march along these iron stones"
That was the year of the Munich bother. Which
Was more important? I inclined
To lose my faith in Ballyrush and Gortin
Til Homer""s ghost came whispering to my mind
He said I made the Iliad from such
A local row. Gods make their own importance.
