Gerry Adams has published a book of poetry in memory of those who died with coronavirus.


The former Sinn Féin president said it was a modest collection of verses put together for his friends and family.


Mr Adams has published a number of books in the past. His latest is entitled Poems For Hard Times.


He said: “It is offered in memory of all those people who died from the coronavirus and their families.


“It is a tribute to the heroines and heroes who minded them.


“And to all the frontline workers who minded and mind us all.”

He said not all of the poems were written during the pandemic, although some were.


He added: “One was written in Havana during Fidel Castro’s funeral.


“Another was written in Gaza City. Others were written on planes and trains.”

Poetic Questions for Gerry


do you wear a black woolly face nappy

when you are doing the shopping

do you maintain social distancing

with your dogs

when you are naked trampolining?

do you and the army council tik-tok like the frontline workers

when you are bored and have nothing to do

because as you and the frontline workers know gerry

there is no pandemic

just a load of propaganda

from toxic big pharma

which suits you a chara

in fact you are made for Covid

you'd make Stephen Donnelly look an amateur

if you were the minister

but you had your day Gerry

now you write poems for the Covid Christmas market

and the face nappy republicans will suck it up

as they obey the curfew

and prepare for mass vaccination

what a sad end

for a revolution

Interesting insight...

"When you begin to think about it, you realise that, for example, the present-day leaders of Sinn Féin and those who have so robustly opposed them are cut, in a sense, from the same cloth. The Provisional leaders, in the way they dress, speak and carry themselves, resemble self-created latter-day versions of the signatories of the 1916 Proclamation. More correctly, they are like composites of our present-day understanding of what those seven men might have been like. Gerry Adams, for example, has the stern, avuncular asceticism, with the merest hint of zealotry, that we might ascribe to a Padraic Pearse, as well as the sense of engaged energy and keen political intelligence we'd maybe associate with a James Connolly — and also, of course, the literary ambition identifiable with a Thomas McDonogh. For all that the 1916 leaders have been dehumanised by decades of mythologising and revisionism, Adams could sit down in the midst of our image of them, and seem quite plausible. It is as though we have created him, and he has created himself, in the stereotypical image of Irish patriotism."

That's shocking nonsense.

And where does Warfield fit in?
