We demand legislation!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m hoping the political Mick Wallace
can give the First Division fan some solace
by asking if the Minister for Sport
might lend the aforementioned fan support
by abolishing, with suitable propriety,
the current two-tier system in society.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 At leader’s question time, he could harangue
Joan Burton and the rest of the shebang
and ask for an immediate white paper
to put an end to this unsustainable caper.
Surely he can persuade the Mayo Fuhrer
to heal this rift between the poor and poorer?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Five years on, the situation’s critical –
perhaps its time that we all got political.
Is there nothing in the constitution
that might relieve our current destitution?
Mick could really offer us an elixir
and make our Enda’s five-point plan a sixer?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Let him address the chamber with defiance
from deep within the United Left Alliance,
entreating our befuddled sporting minister
to close this chasm, inequable and sinister.
(Although it might require a few Mick Wallaces
to get the Government to change its policies.)


Like Darren O’Keeffe’s Cork City (“A New Start”) Shels first home game of the season is again Mick Wallace’s Wexford Youths. Mick recently got elected to the Dail with a huge first vote, so I’m continuing Darren’s theme. (See Darren, I told you I’d get the Wallaces / policies rhyme in!)
