Men of Failure


You failed
utterly and completely

Most of you were shot in Dublin
one was hanged in London

Yet your magnificent failure
paved the way for a nation

And I shall always
love you for that

You who wore the Green
a hundred years ago

Walking unhesitatingly
to your deaths

You glorious men
of  Sixteen
