Je suis Charlie

Richard Bryant

                               Je suis Charlie
                               Yet I have other names,
                               Je suis Séamus or Liam,
                               That’s also me,
                               I live in other places,
                               Derry, Belfast, and South Armagh,
                               Mocked and tortured,
                               Quartered and drawn,
                               Left to die,
                               On the cover of the lane,
                               For my faith,
                               Because I want
                               to speak my mind,
                               And claim my right,
                               To be free,
                               in my own,
                               Irish country.
