Live and die on this day...



My dad was not without love. But a cliche’d Irish motherfucker when he wanted to be. Drinker, brawler, all that stuff. Never shed a tear, saw weakness everywhere. But he had this thing for poems, poetry - reading them, quoting them - probably thought it rounded him off, you know? His way of apologizing, I guess. And there was one that hung over the desk in his den, it was only when I was a lot older I realized he had written it. It was untitled, four lines. I read it at his funeral. 

Once more into the fray 
Into the last good fight I’ll ever know 
Live and die on this day 
Live and die on this day
