Why This Should Be

Poem By Francis Duggan

There are many talented people in every village and city and town
Who live and will die as strangers to renown
Since those who get rewarded and recognized for their talents are only of the few
On this i am not saying anything that is new

I know of some talented people who are not well known
Though with the best at what they are good at they could hold their own
But the masses them will never celebrate
And they will never be wealthy and considered as famous and great

The talented wealthy and famous become known far and wide
Who should be recognized and rewarded for their talents the masses decide
And some quite talented people as unheralded does remain
Why this happens to be beyond me to explain

There are some talented people who for themselves never make a name
Who will never grow wealthy and will die as strangers to fame
Not admired for their talents which seems puzzling to me
And i only do wonder why this should be.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

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

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
