Last weeks unsolved with some more clues

4. You’re born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you’re up in the rarefied atmosphere and you’ve forgotten what shit even looks like.” Layer Cake ~Auntie Kate!

13. I’d commit any sin, mortal or otherwise, to get the hell out of here.” I don’t think any one will get this one… it’s a movie called The Magdalene Sisters. The Magdalene Sisters is a 2002 film written and directed by Peter Mullan about teenage girls who were sent to Magdalene Asylums, otherwise known as the ‘Magdalen Laundries’: homes for women who were labeled as “fallen” by their families or society (though the film itself questions this). The homes were maintained by individual religious orders in the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. The film is a fictionalized account loosely based on true stories of the girls sent to the asylums. Peter Mullan has remarked that the film was initially made because victims of Magdalene Asylums had received no closure in the form of recognition, compensation, or apology, and many remained lifelong devout Catholics.[1] Former Magdalen inmate Mary-Jo McDonagh told Mullan that the reality of the Magdalene Asylums was much worse than depicted in the film.

Poetry Month Quiz

No one guested last week’s poem – so here’s your chance with a clue. It won 4 oscars.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree by Yeats from Million Dollar Baby ~Latte

I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
