I hid my treasures in my daddy's hob nail boots
I dug for treasures in the rockery at the side of the house
I'd look for snails and worms and try to make them fall in love
Bog Road - Forkhill - Circa 1983

The neighbour tried to drown a bag of kittens in the river
I like him so I don't believe it
but some part of me won't forgive him
Bog Road - Forkhill - Circa 1986

Along with our knickers and socks
on the washing line i'd hang my dolls
pretending they were at the circus
i'd swing them round till their plastic heads got dizzy
Bog Road - Forkhill - Circa 1988
