One of the Ha-Ha's from Old Staball Hill


Ballyheigue
County Kerry
Ireland

That man over there
with his head in the well,
his thumbs in his ears
and his arse in the air
like a zeppelin at moor,
if he can write poems
the Ha-Ha’s will read,
all of the Ha-Ha’s,
no matter the breed,
even the Ha-Ha’s
from Old Staball Hill,
if he can write poems,
then poems he will.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
