SEVEN DEADLY SINS: PRIDE
At city B the streets are shut down
nearly every summer weekend
for ulster bands to go through

peeve non – protestant communities

At city B bullets tearing body
scattering bones across front lawns
become BBC news novelty not a custom

yet unidentified crime still takes place

At city B mates discuss:
funerals, football and politics
phew – phew finger pistols aim at any correctness

At city B you let a waitress forget the gravy
mother smack a child in a grocery store
because citizens are a verb in passive voice

recreated and reshaped
aspiring to become part of a proper capital (27th August 2015)
