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'.

Hate Is A Human Feeling
Hate is a human feeling that is way beyond me to explain
Only know it does destroy love in the brain
And has led many people to hate crimes of shame

To murder and terrorism hatred can lead
It darkens the windows of the human mind
Those who have hatred in them cannot be loving, compassionate and kind
Hate as a feeling is a horrible thing
