Blind Faith

Sean Maguire with a poem from a published collection of his work.  

Rally cries and marching bands,
echo like seagulls screeching in
summer tides.
Faithful feet, skip to the beat of
victory tunes,
hellbent on defeat of rival crowds,
hemmed in by riot police;
charged with keeping the peace.

➽Seán Maguire has been writing poetry, song lyrics, short stories and non-fiction for over thirty years and has had a considerable amount of his work published in magazines, newspapers, anthologies and online blogs. The above poem is taken from his collection For Those Left Behind.
