There Will Be Us And They - Poem by Francis Duggan

The same old ancient disputes are played out every day
The Unions and Employers squabbling over workers pay
For the betterment of all involved why does it have to be this way
But as long as there's a Human kind there will be us and they,
Rumours of another war are in the news again
And human being on human being inflicting injury and pain
And for God people suffer and for God people die
But God is supposed to be the source of love which prompts one to ask why
Some people on his behalf behave in such a way
But the young will always risk their lives in battle for the ageing and the gray,
Will we ever learn from history old mistakes we repeat
Yet we say victory despite loss of lives is always very sweet
And if not all out hostilities mind games with each other we do play
And as long as there's a Human kind there will be us and they.
