A Never Do Well - Poem by Francis Duggan

Without any story of personal success to others to tell
So few wish to know of the never do well
Yet on his side of the town than him none as brave
A few years ago the life of a year old baby girl in a house fire he did save
For which he took no credit though credit should have been his due
The never do well to his higher self remains true
One not known to many even on his home street
For attention and success with others he never does compete
His own praises one never does hear him sing
Quietly spoken and humble he does his own thing
One who never daydreams of great wealth and renown
A never do well of his side of the town.
