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 ...
Mother Earth And Nature
For to view it is something we does not have to for to pay
The beauty of Nature that is around us every day
The natural beauty that she does create
One can truly say of her than her none so great
On Nature's Earth Mother to live we depend
But we does not treat her as our greatest friend
We pollute the air and waterways and cut down the old growth trees
And the stench of pollution is blowing in the breeze
Mother Earth and Nature serve our every need
