As Good As You Possibly Can Be - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may not be at the top of the social tree
But you are as good as you possibly can be
To be good as you can be your best you do try
And your worth as a person none ought to deny
You mind your own business and work hard for your pay
And of anyone you never have ill to say
Not the best known or most famous one in the town
To be a nice person seldom wins one renown
Though respect for the feelings of others you've shown
In your local community not even well known
You do not crave recognition for your every good deed
The World of more of your kind is sadly in need
A very good person that's what you really are
And for to find your equal one would have to go far.
