The Irish Eden

by Simon MacCulloch

“Is a woman’s place in the home? Ireland is poised to decide. A vote to axe sexism
from Ireland’s constitution is in the balance…”

The Isle of Saint Patrick, none fairer!
You won’t find a serpent in Eire,
And folk who can’t see
Why a woman should be
Just a bearer and carer are rarer.
