What is this tyranny of head that stifles / The eyes, the senses, / All play on the strings of the heart.

He was lucky Seán Gallagher applied his creativity to his accounting.

There is also an interesting piece on the president in the Irish Times.

I always loved the Michael D poetry skits on Gift Grub (as part of a radio show, a comedian pretends to be Michal poet, and recites amusing poetry.)

I gotta say, his poetry doesn't really do much for me. There's not really any surprises in perspective or tone, it just kinda sounds like reasonably well constructed college-level stuff.

we're giving away 700 Million euros to bankers,

Rumens is incorrect; he is a poet, just not a very skilled one.

The four lines about the journey of the Hero see the driver of this poetic vehicle overturned in a ditch, wheels spinning.

Ok, so Rumens is something of a poet herself.

He's no Václav Havel, but then, few of us are.

Only one of us, in fact.

"Healing," when it's used in the pop-psychology sense, is a word should be kept out of poems.

That sentence could use some healing.

(If you can't decide between that and which, just pick one at random. Unresolved indecisiveness results in sentences don't make sense.)

When you look at what Higgins has fought for throughout his academic and political career it's hard not to see him as the man so many people hoped Barack Obama would be. Sez the Saw Doctors: you've got Michael D rocking in the Dáil Áras an Uachtaráin.

This is my mindset whenever I walk into a voting booth.

We were all lucky.

Especially me, as I put 35 euro on MDH at 2/1 back in July. Finally the politicians are giving something back.

I gotta agree with that journalist. His poetry stinks. He's too self conscious.
