Sean Walsh

I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…

Wee Intruder!

Published on Friday 9th February 2024 by Sean Walsh

Oh, and one night there during the week

when you were away, Dad,

didn’t I walk into the front room

over the pub, thinking it was empty.


And what do y’know, Mammy and Maggie

sittin’ behind the lace curtains

at one of the windows, looking down

at the crowds going up and down Park Street

and across at the neighbours…

And when I switched on the light

they jumped up and you’d swear

I was after committin’ a mortal sin

the way they went for me!

And Mammy sayin’ she’d slaughter me

with the dish cloth when she got me

down to the kitchen…

And  why wouldn’t I switch on the light?

Wasn’t it dark?..
