Seamus Brennan

I don’t think I’ll break with tradition.
I will not speak ill of the dead.
Poor Seamus was some politician.
And that’s all that needs to be said.

Whatever my personal viewpoint,
(I’m just a mere critical knave)
It isn’t worth making a new point
‘Bout someone so fresh in the grave.

In life, I was always quite critical –
It serves little use to deny it –
But now one should not be political.
‘Tis seemlier now to keep quiet.
