So Many Condemned - Poem by Francis Duggan

Climate change, global warming and wars and disease
And the victims of droughts and warlords poor Stateless refugees
Are things that we hear of and read about every day
So many will not live for to grow old and gray,
Born in the wrong place and born at the wrong time
So many will not even live to their prime
It should be a basic human right enough to drink and eat
But in third World Countries children of the street
Search in rubbish bins for food that others have thrown away
That their dogs do not eat bread gone mouldy and gray,
So many condemned to lives of hunger and fear
On news radio so little of good news we hear
And in the refugee camps of the World millions of refugees
The victims of warlords and droughts and disease.
