Are You Such - Poem by Francis Duggan
Are you such a clean living person are you really one without taint?
To others you feel so superior though surely you are not a saint
You cast your aspersions on others 'tis not hard to put others down
These people are trying to do their best and they too have to live in this Town.
You feel you are a fair minded person though some others look on you as small
In a fair go for some you believe in but not in a fair go for all
You look down on the financially embarrassed and mock them for their poverty
It should not be a crime to be born poor and be one of a poor family.
Are you such an upstanding citizen that you have the right to criticize
Every person you see as unworthy or should I say as unworthy in your eyes
You judge others by their Worldly possessions your's do seem quite a narrow view
Of the true worth and values of others but then there are many like you.
Are you such a marvellous person that others you verbally ridicule
Derogatory words can hurt peoples good names and words as we know can be cruel
You cast your aspersions on others those with heavy financial crosses to bear
Remember that thousands must grow poorer for the making of every millionaire.
