The Ballad Of Irish Nationhood

The ongoing struggle between Our Creator
And the source of evil which we all experience
And who is referred to as ‘The Father of lies…’
Involves ones Nationality. For as the source of
A ‘nation’ has to be God, who is love, we serve God
By loving our nation.
Thus ‘patriotism’ is a God given virtue which implies
That ‘freedom’ is not purely about Political, Economic,
And Cultural matter’s…but involves ‘a moral Revolution’ to serve the soul of a nation. A soul Containing in Ireland Catholic, Protestant, and Dissenter elements.
The latter is seed which seeps into the soil of our Nation and in flourishing intertwines to produce love Which is the heart of a nation, a nation where our God Willed us to be born, to nurture, and to serve a God Given task for us all…
Alas, an objective undermined by the father of lies who has since the first moment of British invasion Striven to undermine our nation’s honor. An honor Reinforced by the example of James Connolly Overcoming satanic based Marxism prior to his Execution.
An ‘ism’ which I also foolishly followed as I strove to Serve my country Through a life span of seventy plus Decades…Prior to the advent of over- coming Egotistical based political nonsense fed by the spirit of The father Of lies.
Thus, Ireland, our nation is God given so let us have No truck with the satanic contribution which has failed To serve the welfare of the citizens of Russia, China,
And elsewhere as human history reveals. What we Require is ‘love’ so let us discard all foolish ‘isms’ and Use the Grace of Christ according to his love!
