A Green Desert Father Vol.5 - Those Days In Massabielle
In March 2013, Richard Mc Sweeney, a self-originating lyrical philosopher of Éire brought out a 794-paged hardback titled A Green Desert Father having as its subtitle Philosophical converse of an Árd Rí (High King) of Ireland. This contemporary collectable is a chronologically compiled anthology dating from January 2011 to February 2013 of original narratives, poems, fictional dialogues, and scenic photographs. It boldly addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.
There are conversations in it with for instance Anne Boleyn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, Tarot, Richard Dawkins, Anne Sinclair, Georg Gänswein, and Michel Soyer just to name a few.
Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland.
The entire work is being made available exclusively here on Shopify in 13 short volumes. The scenic photographs of the print work are not included.
This 5th volume contains make-believe conversations with the following people, and entities. Each one was inspired and composed simultaneously in one sitting.
Chancellor Angela Dorothea Merkel
Chinese Communist Party Leadership
Ludwig van Beethoven
A Lady of Mount St. Helens
Known entities of the inner kind
An ancient rock cave, and Saint Bernadette Soubirous
Sir Patrick Stewart

“A time has come; the time is here
when I can no longer dismiss n’ avoid
that we have in our humanity a tendency
to ambush all that we ever hope to rise
to in heights on our journey sublime.
. . .
You have been hidden away from the plot ways
of covered over n’ under to notice
what is going on in the besides of the days n’ nights,
n’ all bound in clouds crashing on to rooftops.
Know you not at all what it is that is going on?
I know it some, but not some a lot
for I have a respect for myself as well as
a fear to be going anywhere it too near.
Well I will; well we will take to enlightening you,
you little innocent one of the fields
though you may now be grown up in years.
You are still the eleven to twelve-year old boy
who with a dog running wide on heel
would walk n’ play in the summer fields,
n’ on the river bank lay gazing
at the fishes effortlessly journeying
through the wavy yellow flowered grass.
That innocent n’ pure, thank goodness
is still within my heart alive n’ well.
We know it pains you ever so to be seeing,
n’ hearing of what is going on in the world.
It is labelled Human Trafficking.
Almost incapable for you to even mention
this one of the many such terrible things
to be happening now in the world, n’ happening
now it is much more than ever n’ ever afore.
Internet has been the handmaid of the traders,
streaming videos n’ the like the servant.
Can’t even contemplate, can you
what it is that is taking place
on a global scale come day come night . . .” Walk in my light
