A Monogamous Man - Poem by Francis Duggan

One who has never yearned for distant travel in his ways settled down
He has lived for many years in Colac he was born and raised in Camperdown
In this age of faster travel one can say a nearby Town
It has been many Seasons since his hair was dark brown

For four decades married to his childhood sweetheart with grandchildren in their life
In her he has a soulmate to him a devoted wife
Now on a retirement pension together they grow old
A kind and generous fellow his life story ought be told

For monogamous males as has been said as now as always rare
So many are polygamous their sexual favors they like to share
Among others as monogamous many males do not stay
Polygamy to some males does seem their natural way

In South Western Victoria he has lived all of his life
His one and only partner till death them part is his wife
Quite a likeable person he has a sense of place
Around the Town of Colac his is a known and loved face.
