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

Summer By Mushera
In the high country by Mushera the sweet scent of hay
Wafting in the breeze on this bright Summer's day
