Poem in response to Savita Halappanavar's death

Last week I wrote a poem which was inspired, no, provoked by the huge international controversy in response to Savita Halappanavar's death here in Galway in late October. It is published on the website of Clare Daly, the United Left Alliance T.D. who proposed legislation to deal with the X-Case last Wednesday. The poem, titled 'The Euphemisms', is dedicated to everyone in Ireland who has ever not said what they meant when talking about the issue of abortion. http://www.claredaly.ie/the-euphemisms/
