The Age Of The Ism - Poem by Francis Duggan

We live in the age of the ism or so 'twould seem that way
And if to the majority you seem different for you there is some price to pay
For with some people it does seem that ignorance is bliss
And their chance of putting you down they are not going to miss
If you are seen to be different in their words they will put you down
You become a victim of the age of ism people like you in every town
Christ was seen to be different to others that is the only reason why
He was made to shoulder his cross up to Calvary where him they did crucify
That too was in the age of the ism more than two thousand years ago
And the end of the age of the ism I for one won't live to know
We have been living in the age of the ism for many centuries of time
Where to be seen to be different is considered as a crime
And the age of the ism is alive and well today
Many of those different are seen as a threat by the majority that does seem sad to say.
