Weary People, What Reap Ye?

“Weary people, what reap ye? Golden corn for the stranger. What sow ye? human corpses that wait for the avenger. Fainting forms, hunger–stricken, what see you in the offing? Stately ships to bear our food away, [amid the stranger’s scoffing]. There’s a proud array of soldiers — what do they round your door? They guard our masters’ granaries from the thin hands of the poor. – Speranza” (The poetry is the first few lines of The Famine Year by “Speranza”, i.e. Lady Jane Wilde, mother of Oscar) “Painted by Síle na Gig & St James Youth Aug 95” In the centre an aboriginal figure holds the flags of Ireland and of the Native Australians.

    Have y᧐u ever considered about adding a little bit
    more tһɑn just your articles? I mean, what yߋu say is important and all.
    However think about if you added some greаt photos or vіdeo clips to give yоur
    posts more, “pop”! Yоuur content is excellent but with images and videoѕ,
    this website could definitely be one of the very best in its field.

    Amazing blog! https://projectstudentsafety.org/sitemap.xml
