Michael Davitt’s Turf

Michael Davitt’s gift of Irish turf
Was stolen one night from Celtic’s pitch,
The thieves crept in when the sky was dark
And stole a piece of Ireland from Celtic Park.

Were it went to, no one could say
When the fans went to watch the Celtic play,
It was probably uprooted and planted in a box
By a regular attendee over at Ibrox.
