Get a real job

Simple plays for simple people,

Said the fathers from the steeple

Micky Bonner couldn’t abide it

Intellectualism, he’d not hide it

Grandad at Seskinore Young Farmers

Aka Tattyreagh Players

My aunt’s got a picture

1948 it was in the paper

Now Dad’s got my press file

Grandad had mate called Packie

Both in amateur dramatics

My genes have acting fanatics

And he also wrote some poetry

His other jobs were ordinary

I guess this liberation

That I’m off a generation

Where you can hear my poem

Beyond the farmers of Tyrone
