For The Crimes Of The Parents - Poem by Francis Duggan
For the crimes of the parents the child should not have to pay
Though the judgemental on them they do have their say
And though the child of the criminal as a person not bad
Is often judged on the record of mum and of dad.
Life can be so hard never easy to win
The child should not wear the taint of the parent's sin
The judgemental of the Human World in their ways so small
They do not believe on a fair go for all.
To be judged for the sins of the parents seems all wrong to me
Each child is an individual would you not agree
Different from their parents born with his or her own mind
To judge one on their parents to me seems unkind.
The judgemental of the Human world to be found everywhere
Far too many of them in the big World out there
In every city and village and town
Looking for any excuse for to put someone down.
