In The World Far Too Many People

Poem By Francis Duggan

In the World far too many people of that there's little doubt
And with the increase in the human population wildlife is losing out
The Amazon rainforest trees being removed for crop growing at an alarming rate
Leaving bird and animal and insect life forms to face an uncertain fate
More creatures and insects added to the endangered list we hear of and we read
Could our extinction of other life forms to our own extinction lead?
What we do unto others to our own selves we do
This does not apply to other humans alone but to other life forms too
The human population numbers growing and other life forms becoming rare
With others creatures of the World we've not learned how to share
This World is their's to live in too though many of us do not see it that way
Extinction is forever and 'tis happening every day
A wise woman told me years ago when I was a young boy
That the World is ours to live in and not for to destroy.

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

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
