Ten Days

by McCollonough Ceili
(Nashville, TN and Ireland)

Ten days alone with the dead,
Ten days and not a tear was shed,
Ten days of hot days and cool nights,
Ten days for them I had to survive.
Ten days of dirt and blood,
Ten days without a family's love.
Ten days of sickening smells,
Ten days of a living hell.
Ten days after the banshee came,
Ten days on an island never the same.
