They Put Labels On Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

As success goes I am not seen as successful but what others think of me I do not care
For I know too much about life in the bigger World out there
I've worked with people of all Nations with the good and not so good
And I never do judge others by their Land of Motherhood.

Those who put labels on others whoever they may be
Are guilty of promoting rank or so 'twould seem to me
Then suppose to their type ignorance is bliss they know not what they do
To the higher human principles they never could be true.

They put labels on others as if it were their right
And then have the cheek to tell you all are equal in their God's sight
They look up to the rich and famous and are full of patriotic pride
People like them are partly responsible for the social divide.

They put labels on others and class distinction they create
Put down the so called under achievers and the social climbers celebrate
And if they see me as an under achiever what they say of me I do not care
Since I know too much about life in the bigger World out there.
