In Drought And War Ravaged Lands - Poem by Francis Duggan

In droughts and war ravaged Lands of famines and disease
Where the poor survivors become refugees
Future generations will struggle to cope
The poor of the future in Lands without hope
From history we learn the children of the poor
Will never know what it's like to be financially secure
And many feel lucky just to be alive
The struggle for them it is just to survive
'Tis said that the gift of life comes out of chance
And poverty it is born of circumstance
And more people dying in a slow painful way
Of hunger and thirst in drought ravaged Lands every day,
Born to poor parents and raised in a poor place
An uncertain future they are obliged to face.
