Francis Duggan

A Cynical Person

He is such a cynical person as cynical as one can be
Yet he is a helpful sort of fellow and few as kindhearted as he
He does not believe politicians or the media and what he hears or read he makes up his own mind
Not the type to follow the leader his own way through life he does find
Yet he helps his aged neighbour Kathy quite frail she is now eighty four
Once a week he helps her with her shopping for her groceries by driving her to and from the super store,
The poor woman must live on an aged pension and she does not have much money to spend
But from her he does not even accept petrol money to her he is such a good friend,
He is not a religious person as one would say not a man of god and prayer
But in that way he is not unusual as his type of person nowadays is not rare
In his mid twenties his favourite pub the local and with his mates he does enjoy a beer
Though the team he plays with the Local Football Rovers have lost more games than they have won this year
Though cynical he is kind and caring and for his good deeds he is known
And not the type for to follow the leader since he has a mind of his own.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
