The Old Cross of Ardboe
constitutionally claimed by Moortown!
Mum’s parents are buried there
paying my due respects at the graveyard mass there
networking with my relatives!
Watching the kids by the graves
seeing one little boy from Ballinderry doing the Sturridge Dance
while the Priests talked about the Martyrs!
Childer never had any respect,
but now it’s taken to hyperbole!
Had to hold back my wondering about our society
leading to a situation where anything goes!
Now we have to bless the Sturridge Dance
the green and pleasant land still holds sway!
