A Song For The Forgotten - Poem by Francis Duggan
'Tis not of a wealthy person or an elite sport's person or a queen or a king
Or anyone seen as one of great importance i now wish to sing
No i will sing of the people who are burdened by care
Of the poor and the hungry in the big World out there.
The Homeless and Stateless and the poor refugees
Who have seen their family and friends dying of hunger and disease
The victims of war who have lived through Earthly hell
Of atrocities and suffering they only can tell.
I have sung of too many who know of great fame
And of successful people far too numerous to name
I'd rather now sing of the poor and downtrod
The forgotten children of the lesser god.
In a World where some of the many with too much only lust after more
The poor and the have nots we choose to ignore
And this song is not for monarch or billionaire
But for the poor and the forgotten of the big World out there.
