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 ...
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
