poem and parody

First Fig
by Edna St Vincent Millay

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes and oh, my friends -
It gives a lovely light.


The Rah Man's Lament
by James Healy

my stick of dynamite burns at both ends 
it will not last the night
but i have infiltrated the irish trade union movement
and judiciary
and cops
and commercial and property sectors of the irish economy
and now parliament
so I do not give a shite
