Orange or Green

So apparently now people in England care about Northern Irish politics, and are often quite bamboozled about what all the different parties stand for. DUP, Sinn Fein, Unionist, Nationalist and that other lot who didn’t win anything… Being Northern Irish doesn’t mean that I am any less bamboozled, particularly by the fact that it now seems you can only be represented by one ‘side’ or the other and you can’t just be somewhere in the middle… Anyway, here is a poem I wrote following the NI elections earlier this year trying to get my head around the two sides which I am meant to choose between – it’s called Orange or Green.
