McKeown, Laurence


Daddy,
Iím not saying your house isnít nice;
it is.
But you see being one night at Mammyís 
and then to your house
and then to Mammyís and
back and forward and
back and forwardÖ
Iím getting tired.
Could we not just stay at our house with you and Mammy?

But Caoilfhionn 
that wouldnít be fair on Daddy.

Iím not saying ”rlaith that I donít like daddyís house;
itís just that one house would be better.
Thatís all Iím saying.
