Dublin Central Mission 1984: A Short Poem by Chris Thackaberry

Dublin Central Mission 1984

 

“Where’s the FUCKING sweets?”

 

Mothballs for Cola drops.

Boys of the book

kicking the bean ball

jumping, screaming, laughing 

for a Cola drop.

 

From a musty pocket-comes 

a sticky Bible tract.

BOLOX…. I wanted sweets.

The man of the book.

 

LOOKED SHOCKED
