Who Gave You The Right - Poem by Francis Duggan
You think you know me thought has proved you wrong
To any grouping I do not belong
We look at life in quite a different way
Does that not seem a fair thing of me for to say?
That you have your own religious and social grouping does suit me fine
Since your business is not any business of mine
You dismiss me as a pagan one with a soul without light
To pass judgement on others who gave you the right?
In your house of worship to your God you do pray
Though in your words those who believe different to you disrespect you do pay
Your God I am sure with you does not agree
Since a good God would never pass judgement on me
I live in my own way and I do my own thing
And of the praises of Nature I only do sing.
