Some Kind of Lie

Are any lies
worth repeating,
be it their size
or their meaning?
The gospel truth
is bullet proof
for stories core.

Too bad I couldn’t find a better video of the Marti Jones‘ song that inspired this:

Blended Irish

Old traditions
don’t fall from grace
Inhibitions
though, lose their place
in Celtic stocks
mixed with punk rock’s
resounding sound
