Ireland 2.0

i wondered when i was young how Germans could go along with the Nazis and now i wonder no more.

. . . tonight i saw the crowd, the gang, the oppressed and their enthusiasm spilling onto the warm Dublin streets of the hippest area of the city, partying, and enjoying the end of the old republic and the welcoming of their new progressive wonderland, their Disney playground in their world of tomorrow. The airplanes flew overhead with the cargo of equality in their slipstream and the cool ones told us how they’re voting as they drank their alien beer, and i imagined an island of separateness in a sea of sameness and thought of making it home.

our world of confusion has become more complicated as the new orthodoxy ascends to the throne, to be knighted by those who hid for so long behind the mask of tolerance.

eyem sad, as all i believed for thirtie six years turned out to be wrong.

  1. I have no idea what you meant by any of that.

      Eyem upset that the referendum passed azeye don’t believe the argument FOR. I believe that how the Yes campaigned was bordering on the fascistic, and eyem nostalgic for the country I grew up in . . .

    • I believe it means the author dislikes the result of today’s historic referendum. The blog’s written in a beautiful, poetic style, so just coming out and saying what they think would be boring.

    I have thought the same many times, and yes, I wonder no more.
