Down by the schoolhouse
At the corner of Mount Street Bridge
The crack of a bullet
Echoes from the surgeons’ college
And here by the canal
A silence descends like death
Little do some know
They’re about to draw their final breath

The inner monologue of a young English soldier “marching towards the gunfire of the 1916 Easter Rising”.
