For As Long As You - Poem by Francis Duggan

For as long as you never harm anyone in any way
And respect to the rights of all others do pay
Or in deed or in word never put anyone down
You are an asset to your side of the town
Always willing to help one of helping in need
Of the fruits of good karma you plant the good seed
And for those doing it tough you can feel sympathy
You have the great gift that's known as empathy
On a time and an age when racism is nothing new
You do not judge a whole race on the crimes of a few
Without you in the World it does seem to me
That humanity itself would far worse off be
On a fair go for all you are one who does believe
And as one who willingly give you deserve to receive.
