Eisbein With My Little Wine!

Yah, well, no fine!
I've had too much wine!
But I'd rather have wine
than that fatty eisbein!

Please capitalize Pearse in the fifth to last line.
the sadness in this poem but also the notion of sacrifice grabbed my attention on this one, I may only have Irish heritage from half my family but this still seems important to me, My own grandfather almost met the same fate from being a gun runner for the Irish military, This is the best poem I have ever read.
I first saw this poem in “The Poetry of a People” by Andrew Marr. I like to stay out of politics and this poem confirms my dislike of Nationalism: “Enchanted to a Stone To trouble the living stream”
