Where is our Arts centre?

Where is our space?
Smaller towns have one to our disgrace
Roscommon has one
Nenagh has one
Even Thurles has one
Birr got a theatre
Tullamore needs an Arts centre
One with a small theatre
They have been talking about one for years
Could host amateur dramatics and professional dramatics
Even the occasional troupe of acrobatics
Movies and documentaries
Its all so elementary
Where is our Arts centre?
A venue for musicals
And all matters theatrical
To plant arts seedlings
To hang pretty paintings
From children’s puppetry
To ambitious poetry
Would it take a petition
To interest the politicians?
And those that sit on the town council
Should we really have to grovel?
When all we want is a space
A space for the Arts
