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 ...
In Spring to home owners they can be a pest
When on chimneys they decide to build their stick nest
They do cause a lot of blocked chimneys in May
These medium sized dark corvids with napes of silver gray
Jackdaws in their range are birds quite well known
One can say of them they have ways of their own
Than most other corvids much smaller in size
Once seen and once heard not hard to recognize
Good friends of the farmers some are known to say
