A Multicultural Town - Poem by Francis Duggan

This is a multicultural town
And all shades live here black, white and brown
From all around the World everywhere
And little in common they share.

With different music, dance and song
And their bonds to their own cultures strong
And from different backgrounds and with different ideals
For them multiculturalism has few appeals.

To different Gods they kneel and pray
And they look at life in a different way
And with different political views and such
In common they don't have that much.

Not alone here but Worldwide
Culture, Politics and Religion Peoples divide
And People like birds and animals more inclined
To socialize with their own kind.

With their own kind they socialize
Which after all is no surprise
The different shades white, black and brown
In this a multicultural town.
