Their Names Should Be Inscibed - Poem by Francis Duggan

Their names should be inscribed on a memorial wall
Those who genuinely believe on a fair go for all
On racism they never leave others in doubt
Against racists they never hesitate to speak out
Their message is racism ought to be outlawed
For their pro human rights stand them we should applaud
They speak out for the rights of asylum seekers those fleeing the warlords of fear
Yet they are never short listed as people of the year
For a fairer Human World for all to live in their part they do play
Though for that they are never honoured which seems sad to say
That they stand for the good in humanity them one cannot deny
Against racism and injustice the flag they do fly
They speak out for the underdog that's a great thing
And their praises I am always happy to sing.
