R.I.P. Rev. I.P.

So
Ian Paisley, the Reverend
with a voice so loud
booming over land and cloud,
now you’ve left for good
for your beliefs you stood
after a lifetime it seems
you were already old when I was in my teens

I
never quite understood, how
a cloth-man could stand the politics
and the MP’s systematic dirty tricks,
I guess it was your stubbornness
that stopped you from ever saying “yes”
that for decades kept your throat so tender
after endless roars of “no surrender, no surrender!”
