God's Not For Everyone - Poem by Francis Duggan
If a God does exist God's not for everyone
Maybe for the billionaire and the billionaire's daughter and son
And the billionaire's close friends and relatives and the billionaire's wife
The one with heaps of money has God in her or his life
But the children of God you surely will not meet
On the cold and gray sidewalks of Poverty Street
From that part of the town God is far away
God does not love everyone that does seem sad to say.
The Supreme Being only loves the select few or so it does appear
To the refugee camps of the World God's not anywhere near
God only does care about the privileged few
Some may say that has often been said tell us something that's new.
Some say God loves all shades of people black and white and brown
But God does not live on the poor side of the town
I can only believe how it does seem to me
That God does not love those in dire poverty.
