The Sacred Month (Poem)

The Sacred Month


As Britain struggled on the Western Front,
The rebellion was planned for the Sacred Month.
They fought in Dublin in nineteen-sixteen.
Brother against brother; barely out of their teens.

As the rebels surrendered on the Sackville Front,
The people complained about their horrible stunt.
They laughed and mocked that it wouldn't work out,
But time would tell    later on    no doubt!

As the rebels were shot in Kilmainham Gaol,
The people got angry when they heard the tale.
They changed their minds in the early morn'
And so "a terrible beauty was born"... [1]

 - By David Callanan

[1] "a terrible beauty was born" quoted from "Easter 1916" by W.B Yeats.
