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 ...
Like A Hole In The Head
She said you lack sense for one well past your life's prime
Since you are one who waste hours of precious living time
In penning this stuff known as doggerel rhyme
It does seem such a waste though it is not a crime
To persist on penning more rhymes every day
Without the reward of any monetary pay
For decades of years you have been a rhyming buff
And you must be addictive to keep on penning rhyming stuff
I do not mean to offend you just offer you good free advice
