Of Good And Bad - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of good and bad races we hear of and read
But I've met with people of different races and of many a creed
And one race that's superior I cannot recall
For the good and the bad I have found in them all
Oh you out there who feel of superior kind
One humbling thought you ought to keep in mind
That you are a mortal just born to die
And in that respect you are no different to I
It should matter more what ideals you embrace
Than your colour or creed or your clan or your race
Or are you one of those who in ways are too small
For to embrace the truth in a fair go for all?
For if you are one who cannot give to everyone their fair due
Then to your higher self you can never be true.
