Godsil Family’s African Origin Myth
I would also suggest that you consider
Encouraging people to embelllish
Their ordinary, semi-private secrets
In service to higher and deeper truths.
I have been practicing “Gonzo Godsil Geneology”
In raising my children.
My great grandfather, Richard Godsil,
Truly was assassinated by the Orangemen,
And truly was a school master at Prescott Catholic School,
In Dublin during the 1850s.
In looking at his picture, reflecting upon my Father’s politics,
Considering probable links between Irish intellectuals
Who were also in the anti-British imperialist movements,
And London based leftists, in reflecting upon my own life experiences,
There is a possibility that Richard Godsil spent some time with Karl Marx.
In my next “addition” or elaboration of the Godsil Family Story
I will add Karl Marx to the Berber Maid of the Jewish Account Man
Working with Ignatius Loyala from a base in Cordoba,
Which maid conceived the son who became the archer
Who was on the Aramada when a Protestant God
Brought a terrible storm
and the Santa Maria de la Rosa
Crashed on the southwest coast of Ireland,
and the archer
Was cast ashore
on the rocky beaches
of the Blasket Islands,
