The Man Who Fear Snakes

Poem By Francis Duggan

The man who fears snakes he is living today
From danger he is smart enough for to stay away
And though the masses the praises of brave deeds may sing
Just a little bit of fear can be a healthy thing
Those who did not know of fear went to an early grave
And though they are admired as the deceased brave
The people who have fear in them will grow old
And why should they worry if their life story is never told
Whilst the fearless have died young in their physical prime
They are enjoying life and having a good time
And this is all that matters since life can be great
And the dead do not know when the living them do celebrate
The man who fears snakes is well and happy today
Whilst his brother the snake charmer for his lack of fear with his life did pay.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

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,
