The Hungry Grass
They buried them like praities in the hungry grass
The only sustenance they knew before
Oh rue the Oomycete, the blight
The flight, the fight - tight innards of the desperations
An Gorta Mór, the murderers and cursed
Mórrígan of the English lords and king
“Oh master save my siblings and the kids”
Die, scum of rutting pigs!
Pre-Auschwitz genocide - they pit my dead
Bulldoze them in the bloated cut
Danu weep, they glut your sacred realm
Ireland grieve and rail!
