Phil The Wise Fellow

Poem By Francis Duggan

Phil the wise fellow with a shake of his head
Says altruism in the Human World is all but dead
With many far too many it is all about me, myself and i
That the narcissistic are growing in numbers is not a lie
And the words of the wise fellow i do not doubt
For he is one who knows what he is on about
He reckons humanity's downfall will be greed
That of far more compassionate people the Human World is in need
He is not one i do meet every day
But he always has something interesting to say
He reckons that Mother Earth the one we depend on to live
We do take far more from than to her we do give
For one in his mid thirties Phil is very wise
Far wiser than most are i have come to realize.

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
