Arise Coffin Ship - Poem by mini sla

I’m of Irish origin of which I’m proud
Alone we built the world with only bare hands
All throughout our history burdening a black shroud
Our own people forced to abandon its land

It has happened before imprinted in history
The coffin ships took our people they say thousands
To create stable futures for next generations
The countless life wasted never to return

Now 2012 history regurgitates itself yet again
Future youth disintegrating before my eyes
Mothers and Fathers facing the same truths
Seeing their children leave to return no more

Greed caused this scourge for its people
The Bankers, Politicians, the Euro a whore
What’s left behind pain and suffering for families to bare
Our Patience and pride eroded to the point of its core

There is nothing here for those that are leaving
No place for the future just life without meaning
Another generation lost in the history books
May bad luck befall on the culprits for whom I’ve no feeling
