Heartbreak – Emmet Kirwan

A powerful spoken word poem, and the most memorable piece to come from ThisIsPopBaby’s “RIOT”, Kirwan tells the story of a young working class woman and her experience.
From looking at sexism faced on a daily basis to showing the hypocrisy of a society that condemns her for being a poor single mother, while papers profit from her story and the state offers no support for her and her child, this piece exposes the affects of neo-liberal and backwards Ireland.
There is little that needs to be said about this, other than it is a must see.
