My Friend Jim a poem by Terry McDonagh, Irish Poet, Playwright and Writer

As I write a lot for young people and visit schools as often as I can, I can’t help but notice how background and perceived status influence behaviour and attitudes towards others. Travellers/gypsies and their children don’t have it easy in Ireland. This poem, My Friend Jim, tries to highlight the differences.
