    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

Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

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 ...

Our Master

The Seasons to our lives do come and do go
And eventually time becomes everyone's foe
It causes age wrinkles and turns hair to gray
And rusts steel and iron through natural decay
Though with my ideas on this many would disagree
I only does say how it does seem to me
That time is our master I venture to say
Though not everybody does see it this way
Years ago champions and known to run fast
