On A Single Day

A list of exports from Cork Harbour
On a single day
The fourteenth of September, Eighteen Forty-Seven
Ran as follows:

147 barrels of pork
986 casks of ham
27 sacks of bacon
528 boxes of eggs
1, 397 firkins of butter
477 sacks of oats
720 sacks of flour
380 sacks of barley
187 head of cattle
296 head of sheep, and
4, 338 barrels of miscellaneous provisions
On a single day
The ships sailed out from Cork Harbour
With their bellies in the water
On a single day in County Galway
The great majority of the poor located there

Were in a state of starvation
Many hourly expecting death to relieve their suffering

On a single day
The Lady Mayoress held a ball
At the Mansion House in Dublin
In the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland
Dancing continued until the early hours
And refreshments of the most varied and sumptuous
Nature
Were supplied with inexhaustible profusion
On a single day
On a single day

It's about time this little country of ours had a bit
Of peace
