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 ...
It Is Part Of Life
It is part of life to eventually die
But the thought of death scares me of this i will not lie
Doubtless fear of death comes from fear of the unknown
On my thinking on this i am not on my own
Of a post bodily death life for the soul i feel reason to doubt
Just one of the reasons that fear of death can be about
Any deceased person i have known have not come back to tell
Me of an afterlife of a heaven or a hell
The biological clock ever ticking away
