The Reforms We Need

"Feeling that rejection in society, it's horrible" 
Senator Eileen Flynn

The reforms we need to make 
are in our own minds 
and hearts. We need 
to pull out the bindweed 
of racism from our lungs 
and drink deep 
from the cooling elixir 
of love, till our thoughts
are like a mountain spring 
bubbling clear 
into the dirty world. 

--
The quote is from the Irish Times on the first Traveller woman in the Irish Oireachtas.
