Are you looking at me?
The last Ballyfermot Writers’ Group meeting of the summer
takes place on 19 July 2017.
But don’t fret –
It kicks off again on Wednesday 20th September 2017.
Ballyfermot Writers Group (adults)
Meets every second Wednesday in Ballyfermot Library.
From 6.30 p.m. – 7.45 p.m.
New members welcome. From beginners to advanced.
Date of next meeting:
Wednesday 19th July 2017
How it Works:
Unholster your pencil and write creatively on the spot to a bespoke, tinselled prompt given out on the night. Then read what you’ve written to the group for lavish praise, iridescent bouquets and international awards 🙂 Or bring prepared writing along and read that if you wish. The choice is yours.
Or just turn up on the night with your own pencil!
Choctaw nation I am in your debt
Choctaw nation I just want to thank you
Choctaw nation I got so upset
When I learned of your wisdom and your virtue
I am sorry for that evil man, I feel shame
That he came from my country
I am sorry for that Sheridan
And the other tools used in colonies
You were halved on the trail of tears
In the wintertime of the year
Had to leave Nanih Waiya
For the cold Oklahoma
Well you lay down upon the road
Tired and hungry and freezing cold
Thousands died on the rough terrain
Food and blankets they never came
You sent money you could not afford
You were touched by Irish people’s suffering
And your brave example struck a chord
Now the Irish are so good at giving
Choctaw nation, thank you.
