The Man Who Claims To Know It All

Poem By Francis Duggan

There is nothing on which he does not have an opinion the man who claims to know it all
On politics and life and on history and on sports especially football
To others in knowledge he does feel superior but no fool like an old fool they say
Some men with age do not grow wiser they only grow arrogant and gray
That in life one never stops learning is something he does not seem to realize
And to know that there are many like him is not really any surprise
He feels he has nothing to learn on saying this the point he does miss
That every know it all in truth knows little and as is said ignorance is bliss
He is one that i do meet sometimes though thankfully not every day
On everything he has an opinion and on everything he likes to have his say
At least it can be said about him that he does not suffer of low self esteem
A know it all has nothing to learn at least this is how it does seem
He has an opinion on everything the man who claims to know it all
On politics and life and history and on sports especially football.

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
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
Now in his early sixties the admirable Mo
