‘CUSHENDAL 1998’

1 min read

Cushendall (by Rossographer)

All we had to understand

on John Bull’s other island.

Cushendall where we were

holidaying; and being English

our accents soon gave us away

despite the Scotch – Irish descent.

That day we’d walked to the pub

to meet some friends for a walk;

when out came the landlord

and his wife – just for a chat,

saying how nice it was to have

tourists back, and we’d liked that.

Then our friends arrived so we

stood up, as habit said we should;

and so, it appeared that we had

only’ been waiting; then before

we knew – we were left alone in

the historic misunderstanding.
