To All A Fair Go

Poem By Francis Duggan

I will shout hooray for prejudices downfall
And i will drink a toast to a fair go for all
To every race and color of white, black and brown
In every city and village and town
The term 'A fair go' to everyone does not apply
Their basic human rights to their people many Governments see fit to deny
In some Countries people who speak out against their Government are serving jail time
Where speech that does not seem as favorable does become a crime
Even in so called democratic Countries one must wonder why
That the term a fair go for all to all does not apply
In our supposedly tolerant society you only tolerate
But the one you see as different to you will never become your mate
In life though everyone is not your friend why should anyone be your foe
Since everyone should be equal 'to all a fair go'.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

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

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
