Aged People

Poem By Francis Duggan

Aged People are dying in nursing homes every day
Most of them through natural causes though some of neglect in some way
There has even been a few cases of proven foul play
And this seems a sad thing for to have to say
Many people in aged care centers die after a fall
Which cannot be a pleasant way for to die at all
And few ever do die without any pain
In most cases that death does not come easy as a fact does remain
For me too old age in time is not far away
It may be in a nursing home i may spend my last night and day
Since in reality human immortality is based on a lie
Eventually everyone does have to die
Aged people are dying in nursing homes every day
And how you and i will die we do not know for to say.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

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
