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

The Moyne Shire In May
Over twenty degrees in the Moyne Shire today
The weather quite warm for late Autumn and May
The magpies are singing on the sunlit trees
Their flute like music is carrying in the freshening breeze

Suppose these are the environmental symptoms of Climate Change
And though the coastal countryside greener after the recent rain
The dams low in water and no water in any drain
No shortage of natural beauty in the Moyne countryside
