Over the Tops
The Muppets are ballroom dancing and we gate-crash into their conversations, One asks “Do you like Kipling?” The other replies “I don’t know: I’ve never kippled.” Do you like Lamagan? Dunno I’ve never lamagged. Well get lammagan’ now. When it’s blue and all around you is green … maybe you’ve come in the wrong door at Hampden Park. Or…., you’re riding high on Slievenagarragh’s heavenly haunches, en route to Chimney Rock top. Boys - you know that one where you bump into an old girlfriend and she’s even better looking than you remember? Sickener. Alas every which way, I end up in the arms of Chimney Rock, the prettiest girl in the class. Like a lion newly stuffed with antelope, Spences River purrs, sated on the fresh blood of walkers’ knees, as golden dragonflies patrol her shores and their merciless witch-green cousins, the size of microlites, prowl the strange banks of dangerous Annalong. The heather is as high as a hefalump’s eye - global warming come to Daddy - if just for such heather! But then comes with it its lodger, the midge nua, now conocted for the Mournes and a real fecker. Says to me one bloodied critter “How did they get through the Irish Sea?”. Thought he said “through the R.U.C.” - midges sure - and a jumbo jet. And past Shelley’s namesake and lo Lamagan! Incidentally, would Sperrins’ gerrym be one Gerry Maguire peering out of this season’s Culturlann’s Arts Programme delighted and over-inked, atop some top? Culturlann is Nationalist West Belfast’s hub of all things Irish, so faces generally would redol with disenfranchisement rather than peer. Just a bit of craic Gerry. Look, I come unarmed. It’s all the rage. A request please, should ár lá ever Tiocfaidh, please make it not the Sperrins.
