Trash Talkers

Poem By Francis Duggan

Though it never will win anybody renown
It is easy in words to put anyone down
Trash talking is easy as easy can be
To do it you do not need a uni degree
And sad to think such people not even rare
Their sort do not have knowledge and wisdom to share
They lack in compassion and in empathy
Of them one might say that they are quite ordinary
On what goes around comes around one ought to believe
For what you sow in life in return you receive
To the higher self trash talkers cannot be true
And on how they treat others does become their due
Trash talkers in their ways are so very small
Since they do not believe on a fair go for all.

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

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
