Bara Cailín 3: 34 ‘Writing. Thinking. Reading.’
‘We want shot of the lot of you!’ sneered the voice. ‘You lot and your reading and writing and thinking.’
If ignorance and distrust has a voice (which it so clearly does) then it would sound just like this one.
Mac listened in stunned silence as the rant continued.
‘Culture means nothing to us anymore. Nothing, I tell you. The Past is just a place where you stupid people live. Writing. Thinking. Reading.’
The voice’s face came very close to Mac now.
‘We’re turning back Time, saving the country from the likes of you and your band of boring biddies.’ The voice was so angry now that Mac’s neighbour renewed her sobbing.
‘Now, not another word out of anyone until we get there,’ it yelled.
