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 ...
I Did Know Her Briefly
I did know her briefly a long time ago
For a brief span of time for three months or so
I did love her back then but she did not love me
There are things in our lives that are not meant to be
She even took me to meet her mum and dad
Which to say the least for me did turn out bad
They did look on me as quite ordinary and rough
And for their lovely daughter not nearly good enough
