A Grudge In The Mind

Poem By Francis Duggan

Some easier to get on with than others happens to be so
But few go through life without making a foe
And it is not unusual that a grudge in the mind can escalate
In the one with the grudge to feelings of hate
And feelings of hatred can lead to serious crime
Which sends the offending one to a lengthy spell of prison time
The people who are liked by everyone who knows them to say the least few
And this is not saying anything that is new
There are some in their words who like to drag down
The most popular people in every town
It is pretentious people who only pretend
That everyone wishes for to be their friend
Not everyone you know does look up to you
The one with many friends does have enemies too.

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
