    All my hopes were swept up like
    cold ashes from the hearth
    I’ve cast them on the sand
    in the yard
    The wind took them, I tell you.

    Marry that, merry met,
    I will not marry him

    My heart is as black
    as fathomless as my Grandfather’s eye
    Kelso though they say I am
    Kelso though I ascertain
    in my veins I am McCarthy
    crawling up the shore in my torn dress
    with blood caked under my ragged claws
    gasping Beansidhe curses in
    my mother's tongue
    seawater drying on my lips into salt
    white as the froth of a wave
    and washed up like a shipwreck

    There’s no happily ever after here
    So grow a pair and cowboy up, my ladies

    They said it skips a generation or two
    This curse
    Broken skin and broken bones
    And a flair for lying still
    under the blade, the fist, the harpy’s maw
    Suck it up suck it up and don’t complain
    Or else you get the lash

    the tongue is a whip, you know
    so quick you never saw it coming
    Just a faint hiss of the air about your face
    And a laceration you can’t explain
    “What is that on your own pale skin, my dearest?”
    “Oh, just the brand, the burn, the witch’s mark”
    And me lapping at the salt
    in the corner of my mouth

    Even sacrifices have their limits
    And mine started on a line drawn in red sand
    Out in Ireland
    The mothers who sold their daughters to the gods
    And the daughters who bore the marks of those gods-

    Marry that, merry met
    I would not marry him

      I love it mum!!

    "Kelso we are,
    Kelso we never forget!
    Kelso stand strong.
    Kelso, what you see is what you get!"

    I love the pride we have in our family names. so many names I lose track.
    I loved the line talking about

    "Marry that. Merry met.
    I will not marry him."

    simply put? AWSOME!!!!

      and this is a good poem too. i feel miserly, less so than others, but still, credit where credit is due, i found it wildly entertaining and like other writing of yours i made me interested to know more about the period/subject matter.
