A Better World To Live In - Poem by Francis Duggan

Olympic gold medals and World Championship medals you well may win
But on doing so you are not making the World a better World to live in
These are personal achievements despite of what many may say
You are not helping those doing it tough in your Country in any financial way
A National hero or heroine and so much of you made
And in your honor in your hometown a huge street parade
But personal achievements though great does nothing for those doing it tough
Who are hungry and homeless living and sleeping rough
For those who help the homeless, stateless and hungry bands never do play
And they are never honored as the woman or man of the day
Yet for a better World for the poorest to live in they are true friends indeed
And of kindness and compassion they are planting the seed
Olympic or World Champiuonship medals they never do win
But for many they are helping to make the World a better World to live in.
