The Winning Poem:

MY HOLIDAY HOME IN IRAQ

In my holiday home in Iraq,
there's a bomb at the front and the back.
When my housemaid comes in to empty the bin
she is strapped to the chin with explosives.
My utility man is a tall Taliban and
he's digging my grave near the roses.

In my holiday home in Iraq,
I'm not having much of a crack.
There's a curfew in force so I sit on my arse
from dusk until dawning while bombs without warning
explode all around me and drive me insane -
they're worse than those concerts in Slane.

From my holiday home in Iraq
if I go out I'll never get back,
so I stay in this room nursing feelings of doom
and think with resentment of unwise investment
and of places so far from this wrecking
such as Tang, Tullyglass, Termonfeckin.

CIARAN O'DRISCOLL
