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 ...
Doris Day the singer and actress at ninety seven has died
And news of her passing has spread Worldwide
One more famous person to be counted out
And of the eulogiesfor her she will not know about
Since to the deceased fame and anonymity are of the same
No use to the dead if in life they knew of fame
Since for them no hope for the future ahead
Money and fame is of no use to the dead
With the one who claims all lives she has had her date
