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 ...
Have You Ever Battled
Have you ever battled your dark dog of despair
And thought to yourself life on me is unfair
You are not the first or will not be the last for to feel this way
There are millions like you in the Human World of today
For you of late nothing does seem to go right
And for you life has become an uphill fight
You wake at five thirty for work Monday to Friday
To work hard for small wages with huge bills to pay
With three primary school going children and your wife not feeling well
