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 ...
A Local Narcissist
Since of himself he only has great things to say
I feel glad that i do not meet him every day
He always tells me of his expensive new car
And of how on the social ladder he is climbing far
He tells me of his beautiful teenage daughters and his pretty wife
He refers to them as the jewels of his marvellous life
His daughters studying in college for their doctorate degrees
They both have won scholarships to him a saving on fees
As he waffles on to me i do try my best
