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 Millstreet Role Model
A devout and gentle person in his own quiet way
He often visited the Millstreet Town church for to pray
Dermy Keeffe was a great person of him one can say
If there is a heaven he is up there today
Yet a toasting glass to him it was never raised
And he was one never singled out for praise
I did know Dermy Keeffe as one free of taint
One of the rare few who did live as a saint
In his words he never dragged anyone down
