O MOTHER OF IRELAND
O mother of Ireland, what have they done,
They sold us out for a mere 30 pieces of silver.
As i walk the graveyard and look at the flags above
and feel the tears flow and ask the question why?
their fight was to free Ireland in their hearts they believed this would happen,
they even starved themselves to death to crush the British crown.
And now they claim the war is over, but how can the war be over when o mother of Ireland you are not free,
as your green land is mixed with a foreign country. Have all these young volunteers deaths been for nothing?
I sit here broken and in despair expressing my feelings of betrayal.
To those Judas’s in leadership that took those 30 pieces of silver, so that this foreign government could keep it’s say,
In the lords word it shares ;Those who profit over blood money, shall be cursed, so mother of Ireland let them be cursed,
for their betrayal of all their comrades.
