Rarer Than Rare

Poem By Francis Duggan

There are many good people generous caring and kind
But the perfect human being may not be there to find
At least such a person I have yet to meet
Though many good people live on every street
I've sometimes heard one referred to as a living saint
But such a person should be free of any flaw or taint
And does such a person exist I for one cannot say
Though I do meet good people and quite a few every day
The dead saints the religious living do celebrate
And between a saint and a good person the difference is great
A saint is one perfect in every way
And 'tis only to a saint that the living do pray
The good they are many and with others they share
But as for living saints they are rarer than rare.

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
We do seem so different so different indeed.

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
