James Stephens

Breakfast Time

James Stephens was an Irish Republican and the founding member of an originally unnamed revolutionary organisation in Dublin on 17 March 1858, later to become known as the Irish Republican Brotherhood, also referred to as the Irish Revolutionary Brotherhood by contemporaries.

The sun is always in the sky
  Whenever I get out of bed,
And I often wonder why
  It's never late.—My sister said
She did not know who did the trick,
  And that she did not care a bit,
And I should eat my porridge quick.
  ... I think it's mother wakens it.
