On Steven O' Riordan

A candidate for the next Irish General Election in Cork North West and a political stand out
This young Millstreet man Steven O' Riordan does not leave anyone in doubt
Whom his allegiances are with a fact he does not hide
Society's ignored and marginalized can count on Steven on their side

Few Independent left wing politicians have ever made it to Ireland's Dail
The three seats in Cork North West held by Fine Gael and Fianna Fail
For Steven for to win a seat it would be a huge achievement indeed
Though of more politicians like him every Country is in need

At his speech online at U C C i could only feel impressed
The needs of his less privileged constituents by him passionately addressed
The World better to live in when people like him do succeed
Of change much for the better his kind always sow the seed

In a constituency where people in their political views never change that much at all
Steven's hopes of winning a seat to say the least seems small
But i feel this is a pity and i only hope he beats the odds
As they do need good friends in Cork North West the children of the lesser gods

Where most people vote as their parents did and who advise them from the grave
For to enter politics as a socialist independent one would have to be quite brave
There is more to Steven O' Riordan than an older brother of the World famous Joanne
It surely can be said of him that he is his own man.
