Just two short verses quoted by the author:
"So here, while the mad guns curse overhead,
And tired men sigh with mud for couch and floor,
Know that we fools, now, with the foolish dead,
Died not for flag, nor king, nor emperor.
But for a dream, born in a herdsman's shed.
And for the secret scripture of the poor."
"'Twas in Kilmainham prison yard our fifteen martyrs died
And cold and still in Arbour Hill they are lying side by side,
But we will yet pay back the debt for the spirit is still alive
In men who stood through fire and blood with convict 95."
