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

Twilight By The Finnow
The small brown lark was caroling as upwards he did fly
An unseen speck of music in the gray evening sky

And time keeps ticking on and on it does not wait for me
And the years have left me far south and many miles away
From the old fields by the river at the twilight of the day
