Politics in Northern Ireland
a bilingual limerick by Limerick bilinguist Gabriel Rosenstock
We'd bring back the border tomorrow
It may cause discomfort and sorrow
It's simple, you see,
Says the DUP
We must prevent Sodom (and Gomorrah!)
Tugtar ar ais dúinn ár dteorainn
Is bíodh líne eadrainn i gcónaí
Arsa an DUP
(Ní i nGaelainn Chiarraí):
Bíodh an diabhal buí ag Sodam is Gomóra!
Gabriel Rosenstock was born in postcolonial Ireland and is a poet, haikuist, tankaist, translator, playwright, novelist, short story writer and essayist.
