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 ...
Surely A Lie
She was the young woman with wavy golden hair
Than her in the town there was none quite so fair
He did love her then and he loves her today
Though time it has stolen some of her beauty away
Together they have been through many an up and down in life
But true to his higher self he remains loyal to his wife
Their story of love would make for a good read
It is only by good example that they do lead
At least five decades past their physical prime
