Here there be lions

Here there be lions.

(J.J. 2-2-1882-1-13-1941)

 

I think

He will be happy here

Said she

Nora Barnacle.

 

She stood

At the

Borrowed grave

On the

Banks of

The Fluntern River.

 

And

Prayed not

Not

One good word

For the Irish.

 

I think said she

Nora Barnacle

He will be happy

Here

Near the gates

Of the

Zurich zoo.

 

Here

He can hear the lions roar.

 

HicSuntLeonesHicSuntLeones

Here there be lions.

Here there be lions.

 

O sons and daughters of Dublin

Will you give no rest

To your

Ulysses

No Finnegan’s wake

No place

In good irish soil.

 

HicSuntLeonesHicSuntLeones

Here there be lions.

Here there be lions.
