Mattie Lennon Irish Poet- A SUGGESTION FOR TWO IRISH GOVERNMENT MINISTERS

A SUGGESTION FOR TWO IRISH GOVERNMENT MINISTERS

By Mattie Lennon

A suggestion for James Reilly and for Alan Shatter too.
If you will just bear with me I’ll spell it out to you.
‘Twill boost our ill economy like nothing did before.
You simply make a little switch and then you do no more

You take the prisoners from Mountjoy, Wheatfield and Castlerea.
And put them in the old-folks homes; for their crimes there let them pay.
They’ll get cold food (some time of day), that’s if they’re fed at all.
If they call for help the attitude, is, “let them shout an’ bawl.”

They‘d seldom get a shower, they’d have to live with grime
If they want a dirty protest sure they’d have it all the time.
The second part is better; a plan that couldn’t fail
Collect the senior citizens and put them all in jail

It’s there they would be happy, each with their private cell
And checked on several times an hour to make sure that they were well.
With all their needs and little wants looked after by a guard
And those who wanted exercise could jog around the yard.

A library and a workshop where they could read or paint
And a Board of paid directors to deal with each complaint.
Doctors, Priests and Nurses will be at their beck and call,
Any shortfall in prescriptions would be lobbed across the wall.

Although my proposition might be met with sneers and grins
I don’t expect objections (not even from the Quinns.)
So Ministers if you’re listening to this advice from me
Dismiss your well paid mentors; I’ll council you for free.

Janice M. Nargi Author- THERE IS NO HERO IN HEROIN

THERE IS NO HERO IN HEROIN

by Janice M. Nargi

My son is Tommy and he is an addict. His drug of choice is heroin. He started abusing Oxycontin when he was sixteen and graduated to mainlining heroin when he was eighteen. This is our story; Tommy’s and mine, his mother. And it is the story of Tommy’s life chasing the high, and my life chasing after him. It is our hopes this collaboration will help strengthen our relationship, assist Tommy on the road to recovery and offer help and encouragement to others chasing as I write this. We pray our story will convince you to chase a new high, a natural high on life.

This story is factual. Names have been changed for obvious reasons. It is graphic. It is real. There is no hero in heroin.
