The Bombing of Campile (Paddy Cummins)

Regular price €10,00

Tax included.

A VILLAGE WEEPS

It’s Nineteen-forty, August twenty-sixth,

Another World War is underway.

Hitler’s greedy eyes are firmly fixed

Across the English Channel on his prey.

Denmark, Norway crushed, and also France;

To England next his evil focus turns.

The Luftwaffe now has orders to advance;

To terrorise and blitz ‘till London burns.

Can holy Ireland now stand idly by?

Or join the cause to fight the common foe.

Democracy and freedom doomed to die

Despite much pleading, Ireland answers no.

As Europe bleeds we give our loyal consent

To bask in  our neutrality and peace.

While evil stalks the Planet we’re content

To watch and hope that soon it all will cease.
