To Be A Good Person Is Not That Hard At All

Poem By Francis Duggan

To be a good person is not that hard at all
Though your every good deed few may wish to recall
The praises of good people few ever do sing
But praise to a good person does not mean a thing
Good people help people for love not for greed
And they will stand by you when you are in need
You never do hear them put another down
The quiet achievers of their side of the town
Lets hear it for every good woman and man
The people who will help you out if they can
When you are in financial difficulties they come to your aid
And if you cannot repay them they do not ask to be repaid
They are indeed worthy of our unreserved praise
To every good person my toasting glass I raise.

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,
