Francis Duggan Poems
Racism Is Around Me Everywhere
Of human ignorance I am almost in despair
For racism is around me everywhere
But like they say sheer ignorance is bliss
Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.
Some people carry their honour in a flag
And of their Nationality they brag
They feel superior and they differentiate
And against those who are different they discriminate.
So many people still judged by their race
For such there never ought to be a place
'A fair go' those untruthful words I do recall
There is no such a thing as a 'fair go for all'.
Though we live in a so called ...
Our Own Stories To Tell
Though some of us materially not doing well
Of life we all have our own stories to tell
Of our good and bad days in Seasons now gone
The clocks on our lives ever keep ticking on
Some may tell you that success is a relative thing
But of the praises of paupers you will not hear many sing
This is how it always was and is and always will be
In life success linked to the accumulation of money would you not agree?
Though others on this may have different to say
