Another Humbled Bully - Poem by Francis Duggan

To win a few local bar room brawls his claim to local renown
Loud mouthed and unsophisticated the bully of the town
Till he finally met his match a smaller fellow punched him to the floor
With two swollen eyes a broken nose and missing teeth he does look sad and sore
We pay for our life's lessons those words ring ever true
And the beating that he did receive to him was overdue
When he has a few beers in his mouth does rule his brain
Though to him his hard life lessons involves physical pain
Another humbled bully but of his type he will not be the last
One can only hope for his sake he learns from his mistakes of the past
He is lucky that his pub brawling did not cost him his life
And lucky he did not meet one who did carry a knife
For some involved in bar room brawls die in the cruelest way
Compared to them 'twould seem his life lesson does seem quite small to pay.
