Why Tell

Poem By Francis Duggan

Why tell me about it i know all too well
That the ego it is not a hard thing to swell
Since i too have an ego that is not hard to inflate
Of the humble i have not met that many of late
The ego in everyone it is alive
And it is true that we need it just for to survive
And the wealthy celebrities who have the adulation of fame
For their swollen egos them one hardly can blame
Since praise as we know it can go to one's head
A quote from a wise person and a truer word never said
It is a tough World the big World out there
And in the twenty first century humility never gets one anywhere
And why tell me about it since i know all to well
That the ego is not a hard thing for to swell.

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

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
