Pigs Can Fly

Poem By Francis Duggan

If some one tells you that pigs can really fly
Would you tell him that is a blatant lie
Or would you tell him that it may be true
Your statement though seemingly outrageous some credence is due.

Many adults believe in a heaven and a hell
Though that's something that parents to their children tell
To scare their naughty children saying you naughty girl and boy
An afterlife of heaven you never will enjoy.

What your political leaders tell you do you truly believe
Even though to them 'tis harder to tell the truth than it is
to deceive
How gullible at times we all can be
The truth in blatant lies we only see.

We allow our phobias to be filled with fear
Suppose we only believe what we want to hear
By so called honourable people to we have been lied
The truth from us they only choose to hide.

You may as well believe that pigs can really fly
And like birds do enjoy the freedom of the sky
Since our political leaders us often deceive
And the blatant lies they tell us we believe.

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
