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'.

Denis Kevans was known as Australia's Poet Lorikeet

In his words for the rights of Australia's first people the banner he flew
A lyrical genius his equals so few
For political and social outsiders he always spoke out
Of his way of thinking he never left one in doubt
