Poem By Francis Duggan

To be the top feline in the neighborhood is Russell's claim to renown
Cherie Amor's big black and white tabby is the cat about town
The other tom cats in the neighborhood of him live in fear
That he is the boss cat does seem obviously clear
His nicer side to people big Russell does show
In his side of the town the cat everyone does know
The neighborhood dogs ignore him since Russell from them never backs down
It is due to his lack of fear he has become the top cat in the town
To his human neighbors a few times every day
Big Russell the feline a visit does pay
But other cats scared when to them he is near
And out of his sight they quickly disappear
Cherie Amor's big black and white tabby Russell by name
To be top cat in the town is his claim to fame.

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
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
