Hillsbourough Drive 2016: Chris Thackaberry

Another poem from the collection of Dublin Unionist Chris Thackaberry.




Hillsborough Drive 2016



                 Where East met West -in epic force 


Sonic boom rattled my window

                             as I raddled my son to school


‘That’s a bomb’ – as I turn the door to work

                                           Titania onto Cregagh 


The splintered remains, untidy’s my road

                                     and dishevelled my mind    


                    into a Serb like hate


‘Fenian Scum’ repeats in my head 

                                         as I drive East to West


My first patient is Teresa
