Sunday morning pancakes is our routine
Coffee, cainnt and ceòl
I put on Paddy Reilly who sings The Fields of Athenry
I ask the kids to listen to the words
Why did he have to steal Travelon's corn?
Because his family were starving
The famine is explained including that people still starve today
The anger in the injustice fills the room
Afterwards I hear a radio report on Syria
The same ol shit is happening to families there
Pawns in imperial power games
Some things never change
