The Twins of Macha…

County Armagh, Friday, 17th June 2022…

***

***

For one of the most important sites in the country

there was not very much to see.

*

It was also raining quite heavily

so any shots taken were infested

with rain-drops masquerading as orbs.

*

It was nevertheless apparent

that there is something very fine

and rarefied about the place.

*

It is just difficult to say, precisely,

what that something is.

***

***

From a more literary stand-point,

even if we accept the current officially held time-line,

there are at least two distinct pre-historical periods

represented in the texts which have been merged.

*

In the stone age story Balor’s evil eye

is dispatched with a sling-shot.

*

In the bronze age story a spear is used.

*

This represents a possible time lapse

of some three, to six thousand years!

***

The archaeology is of little if no help, whatsoever,

although some of what stood

within the earthwork enclosure and ditch,

was burned a very long time ago

just like the bones of the once living

at the court-cairns.

***

***

There was though,

a guardian dragon…

***

***

…Which on closer inspection

looked more like a boar…

***

***

…and there was also another

green wyrm-hole,

that no one was brave enough

to venture down for fear of the consequences.
