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 ...
The Clocks On Our Lives
The clocks on our lives ever keep ticking fast
And each day we do live one nearer to our last
Make the most of each day life is a precious thing
Who knows for to say what the future will bring
Some of the town's wealthiest people are not so today
Where the dead are their last remains lay
To the scythe of life's reaper all lives does fall
And to the dead fame and money is of no use at all
Life is not all about what you do for yourself but also what for others you do
