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 ...
The Greatest Of All
So little about her i can claim to know
Yet my wonder of her only does seem to grow
I first grew to love her sixty years ago
And i love her today though time has become my foe
Mother Earth or Mother Nature she is known by either name
The one who will outlive the mortals who have known of Earthly Fame
Compared to her achievements the greatest human achievements seem small
She remains as she was as the greatest of all
The one who has in her the magical power
