Father's Day

Father’s Day

We knew that mother’s day

Would be a hard act to follow

Flowers were out

Make up, a mockery

We considered chocolates

A lying in state of succulent shapes

With a blue ribbon and a bar code

Before settling for a selection of scratch cards

And a prayer

That you would win enough

To boost our inheritance


Congratulations to 10 year old Laetitia Igwe on her recent success in the Meath Art and Poetry competition. Laetitia's poem is called 'Nationalities' She is a member of the Navan Junior Writer's Group which meet every Saturday morning in the Navan Library
