Need One Say Anymore

Poem By Francis Duggan

Are you one of those quite unwilling to give
Remember it is not how wealthy you are but how well you do live
They are poor of mind those who live to receive
On reaching for the higher self they do not believe
That for them to grow richer others may have grown poorer they seem to fail to realize
But with their sort this never is any surprise
In their way of thinking compassion and kindness are totally wrong
In humanity such things ought not to belong
On saying the unwritten commandment is observed by more than a few
In truth is not saying any thing that is new
The kind and compassionate are great people indeed
They never ignore those of helping in need
Those less fortunate than us we ought not to ignore
Is a fact of life of this need one say anymore.

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
