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.

And of their Nationality they brag
They feel superior and they differentiate
And against those who are different they discriminate.

She has the brown skin of her Indigenous Race
The type of young woman young men wish to know
Twenty year old Kathy has the inner glow
She lives and works in Carlton in Melbourne but there she will not stay
