Sam - Poem by Francis Duggan

When compared to my neighbor the kind hearted Sam
How self centered and selfish a person i am
To help those in need of helping he goes out of his way
One who does perform good deeds every day

Yet he even remains a stranger to local renown
An unsung hero of a coastal country town
Where sport stars and celebrities take pride of place
The kind and compassionate fellow's not a well known face

The already big egos they do further inflate
Where the kind and compassionate and caring they do not celebrate
Though it is not the need for adulation kindness in him provoke
He just happens for to be a very good bloke

He does not idolize celebrities or talk of football
But of all of the town's young men the kindest of all
Ask the poor aged widowed pensioner Mr's Wright about Sam and to you she will say
He has done so much to help me without asking for pay
