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'.

Warrnambool In July
In Warrnambool a wild and wet wintery day
The sun behind gray clouds is hidden away
But it is not unusual to have some wet days in July
Though the southern Winter weather most cool to dry
The tiny frogs singing in every pond, dam and drain
The urge to breed is in them in the winter rain
And the warbling flute like songs always pleasant to hear
Of the magpies who sing every day of the year
In Warrnambool in July natural beauty to be seen
