Bara Cailín 5: 16 ‘a single pleading stream’

Imagine a single pleading stream of hopeless angry frightened desperate voices captured and then eventually set adrift across the darkest darkness of Time and Space forever more.

‘We are very sorry.’ ‘Isn’t there someone who can stop this?’ ‘We wanted to grow old together.’ ‘I can’t find my mammy.’ ‘I don’t want to die.’ ‘Can we talk about this?’ What did we do to deserve this?’ ‘How dare you!’ ‘Please don’t do this to us.’ ‘My wife died this morning.’ ‘We’re not afraid.’ ‘I think my parents are still alive.’ ‘I refuse to say anything.’
