A Parody 'No Racial Prejudice Intended'

Poem By Francis Duggan

Came to Australia short of a bob
Went to Centrelink for job
But lady behind the counter say
You don't have to work, we pay.

We'll upkeep you your wife and family
Methought that damn good idea
Each morning you stay in bed
Aussie go to work instead.

Thank you Aussie you are great
You put meat upon my plate
Better far than rice and tea
This the life the life for me.

Thank you Pete Costello and John Howard
By the Gods you are empowered
Of your kindness taken note
Next time for Liberal we vote.

Good Australian I can speak
Plenty time to learn all week
Now I speak the English good
And I can be understood.

Australian I can imitate
I use words like 'good day mate'
And I feel Aussie to the core
Could I ask or wish for more?

And thank you Australia for everything
Made me welcome as a king
And I feel only love for you,
Your's sincerely, Kung Fung Loo.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed
We do seem so different so different indeed.

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
Now in his early sixties the admirable Mo
