    There are over 8000 peeks into the beautiful life and soul of Francis Duggan here. This, combined with all the combined works of Lyn Paul, Midnights Voice and Red O'Mara almost makes me happy about my insomnia: ^) I just love poetry and these are the Masters!

    Francis Duggan, widely written, is an amazing poet. His writings are full of life, and wisdom, and inspiration, and I enjoy them immensely.

    In Penshurst lives a poet
    Francis Duggan is his name
    he posts work on the internet
    as well as earning local fame
    his birth place was in Ireland
    now he calls Australia home
    every day writes rhyming verse
    in lyrical traditional form
    his themes range from bird and tree
    through to complex human nature
    soul sees both beauty and misery
    sympathises with living creature
    he wrote a wonderful anthology
    called ‘Songs of Sherbrooke’
    exploring many aspects of life
    examines closely cranny and nook
    if there’s something that you want
    to know about life down-under
    follow Frank’s heart, see through
    poet’s eyes world full of wonder

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 ...

Old Stan

He's over forty years beyond his prime day
With silvery hair and gray hairs on his chest
And whilst most his age are sitting and relaxing
And giving their old weary bones a rest

He runs along the sea shore in his swim wear
The wrinkled old bloke with the deep suntan
But for his age he's fit and energetic
And there is still a lot of life in Stan.
