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 ...
On his nostalgic moments Guiseppe is often close to tears
As he thinks of the past and the long gone years
And the City where he grew from a boy to a man
When he talks of home he always refers to Milan
He remembers with sadness the love of his life
Claudia his dark haired beautiful young wife
Who died in childbirth a long time ago
Going back the years near six decades or so
