Best Poem of Francis Duggan

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 ...

Read the full of Racism Is Around Me Everywhere


They only have memories of a day long gone by
The cold winds of February blew in the gray sky
As her adult children brought their mum in the family car
To her home in the country the journey not far

Her wish was at home for to spend her last day
Though the life's breath in her it was ebbing away
cradled in the arms of her daughter in the back seat she lay
She would not make it home before death had it's say
