A Compassionate Young Man - Poem by Francis Duggan

He does not even yearn for local renown
The shy and quiet bloke of the coastal country town
Yet people who know him nice things of him say
Since to help others out he goes out of his way
He helps the town's poorest those of help in need
Yet he never seeks recognition for any good deed
Near his physical prime he has just turned twenty one
His father and mother in him raised a good son
He does not play sport many his age play football
Such manly behaviour does not interest him at all
A devoted member of the local Vincent De Paul
When the poor ask for help he does answer their call
A compassionate young man I feel privileged to know
The seeds of good karma for himself he does sow.
