The Man Who Always Speaks The Truth

Poem By Francis Duggan

It is said he is arrogant and lacking in ruth
That he is not a nice person the man who always speaks the truth
His honesty never has won him a friend
Deceit can work wonders for you why otherwise pretend
For lies in his life there is never a place
He will tell you what he thinks of you up to your face
It is said of him that he lacks in common sense
That if he learned for to bend the truth he would cause less offense
He may well be a person of integrity
Though one never wins friends out of complete honesty
The most truthful person in all of the town
But complete honesty is never a claim to renown
The reason he is seen as arrogant and lacking in ruth
Is that he is a person who lives by the truth.

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,
