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 ...
Old Brown Creek
The old brown creek it winds it's way down
Through the flat and dry paddocks and by many a country town
On towards the big river to the sea far away
It never stops babbling by night or by day
Flowing milleniums before the dinosaur time
It has been the inspiration of story and rhyme
It was very old when the first people came
And they used to know it by another name
