I Pity Those

I pity everybody who is Homeless and I pity every Stateless refugee
And I pity those who have a drug addiction these people they are far worse off than me
And though I do find life an uphill battle compared to them I ought not to complain
And to say the least it is quite disappointing when from others suffering some do stand to gain.

I pity those who have a mental illness their cross in life to have to live this way
Condemned to spend their lives on medication such price for living they do have to pay
And the terminally ill who will not live to grow old too soon they live their final night and day
We are born to die like every mortal life form and on how long we live we do not have a say.

I pity the victims of droughts and famines and the innocents of war zones who die young
Their names you won't see on a wall of honour their praises by the masses never sung
For many living life is never easy especially those who live in dire poverty
For one to grow wealthy many do grow poorer in the Human World of so much inequality.

I pity every have not of the World and the have nots nowadays are to be found everywhere
There are millions of them or maybe billions the poor souls of the bigger World out there
Through their life journey they do struggle onwards till to the scythe of the Reaper they eventually do fall
A tough old World to live in for so many and no such a thing as a fair go for all.

I Pity Those Struggling With Inner Strife

I pity those struggling with inner strife
They are missing out on the best thing in life
Which is happiness which does lead to peace of mind
Though a truly happy person is one hard to find
Laugh and the World laughs with you seems true after all
Some are never happy though their worries are small
And pity the wealthiest one in the town
With the weight of worries by stress weighted down
The influence of power through money many do pursue
But that money cannot buy you happines does seem so true
That the town's saddest person may be well off financially
Such can be the case or so such seems to be
'Tis true money can buy you most everything
Though happiness to one it does not always bring.

I Question

I question myself on what life is about
And my worth as a person I often do doubt
Society in general I fail to impress
And in Big Brother's eyes I am not a success.

In my life I find little to celebrate
And in time I'm not distant from my use by date
Yet few I look up to and none I revere
And of death 'tis the thought of it I only fear.

I question our judgement on the people to high office we elect
For one cannot help but of political leaders to be circumspect
When it comes to our reasoning we are not very wise
For our trust in them some do repay us in lies.

I question the existence of this being known as God
In a World where many are poor and downtrod
In most things I look at a question I see
I am always embracing the cynic in me.

I Respect All Decent Human Beings

I respect all decent human beings but to none I dip my hat
And I would fight for no Country my life worth more than that
And I love all wildborn creatures and Nature is my queen
As she wears my favourite colours my favourite colours green

I don't believe in royalty to none I bow my knee
The pope, the queen, the pauper are all the same to me
Those who look up to moneyed types on others will look down
But the one who does nobody wrong is the one who wears the crown.

I see my God in Nature my God is everywhere
The animals that live on grass and the swallows of the air
The birds independent of man who sing for joy of song
To the green God of Nature these creatures all belong.

I respect all decent human beings who live by book of right
But I'm not a patriotic type and for no Country I'd fight
And my God is in Nature and from church I keep away
I'd rather walk in forest than kneel in church and pray.
 
Francis Duggan
