Easter Week

                        Behind a line of Guinness barrels
                        Stacked head height across the street,
                        Young men in khaki peering through gaps
                       Look to your front
                        Caps pulled low, eyebrows itching
                        Mark your target
                        Squint away sweat’s needle sting
                        Take bewildered aim                                   

                        At Poets and slummies
                        Who’ll pray to Saint Jude                                   

                         And make every shot count.
