Mention of Behan reminds me of his explanation of the difference between poetry and prose which I read somewhere recently. Goes more or less like
"There was a young man named Leech
Who worked for Ferrier Pollocks
He went for a walk on Dollymont Beach
and the water came up to ankles"
"Now thats prose, but if the tide was in, well that would be poetry"
