A Tribute to The ‘West Belfast’ Sherpas

sherpas
Slaibh Dubh it is their Everest,
message always Controversial,
These great men of ingenuity,
the ‘ West Belfast Sherpas’

climbing

High up to the lush green fields
of this mountain quite a trek,
All that is required to spread the word,
strapped firmly to their backs,

eriu

Huge white letters clearly spell out,
the truth of what, must be told,
No matter where your injustice-here
your plight will unfold.

end

For miles around over Belfast and
for as far as the eye can see,
You cannot avoid, ‘ whats in your face’,
give it some thought, pay it some heed.

  1. Thanks Willie – every little helps – thought it was a good metaphor (sisyphus) for the struggle for civil rights and social justice. Glad to see you agreed.
    Hope things are going a little bit better for you now
    Regards
    Ben
