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 ...
They worked so hard for their every take home pay
But sadly they are not remembered today
For helping to give us our present prosperity
Yet their achievements has not earned them a chapter in the book of human history
They are not seen as worthy of any claim to renown
The working people the backbone of every city and town
Sadly their fans in numbers are becoming more rare
Yet without them there would not be any millionaire
