That They Are Courageous People - Poem by Francis Duggan

That they are courageous people of them one can say
For the Human World's true battlers lets hear the hooray
The struggle of survival they live every day
In a fair Human World life would not be this way.

The people who do know of dire poverty
The Stateless the homeless and the refugee
Compassion for them by too few has been shown
Of life's survival struggle far too much they have known.

You who talk of life's choices you tend to generalize
You do seem judgmental as opposed to wise
You may be well to do but in your minds you are small
Since you could never believe on a fair go for all.

The Human World's true battlers one can only admire
And of singing their praises I for one never tire
The poor and the homeless to be found everywhere
There are millions of them in the big World out there.
