To All

Poem By Francis Duggan

To all who trash talk of me in public and call me out of name
If I cannot say them I forgive Of them does that make me the same?
For I am not the type of one to turn the other cheek
Like many I lack in mental strength in ways I too am weak.

Those who bad mouth me I wish to forget but I find it hard to forgive
Since they who bad mouth others do not believe in live and let live
I'm one of those a godless man and those who bad mouth me
I cannot say you I forgive though you are my enemy.

For everyone who builds you up there's one to drag you down
Of those who feel they have the right to judge there are many in the town
Judge not and thou shalt not be judged with those words I do agree
The flaws we see in others in our own selves we do see.

Those who say negative things of me I just wish to forget
To have known them in the first place is a thing I do regret
I am not a man of words as such though with words I too can play
And to those who assault my character respect I cannot pay.

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
