Thomas Mcelwee - H-Block Martyr

James Connolly’s spirit
I wish to inherit
The passion of Pearse
I wish to claim

The strength of Collins
Would make me determined,
Tom Barry’s leadership
To hold Ireland’s flame.

As Ireland stands
With her angel wings
The souls of the dead,
Aloud, they sing,

Bring back the armies
Of ancient Irish kings,
For the freedom bell,
Once again, will ring.
