poem and parody

The Lake Isle Of Inish Free
By WB Yeats

I will arise and go now
And go to Inishfree
And a small cabin build there
Of clay and wattles made
Nine bean rows will I have there
A hive for the honey bee
And live alone in the bee loud glade
And I shall have some peace there
For peace comes dropping slow
Dropping from the veils of morning
To where the cricket sings
There midnight's all a glimmer
And noon a purple glow
And evening full of the linnet's wings
I will arise and go now
For always night and day
I hear lake water lapping
With low sounds by the shore
Whether standing in the roadway
Or on the pavement grey
I hear it in the deep heart's core.


Inish Free
by James Healy

i will arise and go now
and go to inis everything costs a stack of cash
and a small drug gang build there
of skanks and skummers made
nine audi a4's will i have there
a safe house for growing hash
and live alone in the murder loud glade

and i will have some Triads there
and the Russian Mafia, and Al Qaeda, and Nigerian gangstahs too
for murderers come dropping slow
dropping from the veils of evening
to where Judge Liberal furnishes them with irish passports
and Get Out Of Jail Free Cards
there midnight's all a glimmer
and noon a purple goo
and evening full of the audi a4 gang revving up their engines

i will arise and go now
for always night and day
i see drug scum using teen militias
to trade their poisons into local schools
whether standing in the roadway
or on the pavement grey
they really have taken us for fools
