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 ...
You May Have A New Home
You may have a new home and a brand new car
But leave it to others to say of how marvelous you are
For self praise is no praise as the wise one does say
But you are one who does not see it in this way
You boast of your clever children and your beautiful wife
The gems in the crown of your wonderful life
With you self promotion is quite an in thing
Just one of those who their own praises do love to sing
Your sort of person i for one cannot admire
