As We Know Good People - Poem by Francis Duggan

As we know good people have never been rare
For the sick and the needy they happily care
But some in their self serving ways are so small
And the selfish minority spoils it for all
There is nothing wrong with being a multi millionaire
If with the under-privileged just a tiny fraction of your wealth you do share
But far too many very wealthy people only do ever think of their own need
And sad to say are possessed by demon greed
The gap between the haves and have nots is growing wide
And far too many people of malnutrition have died
'Tis a sad indictment on our societies of today
That many are left to die in such a way
But as we know good people are not or were never rare
And for them and them only there should be a fanfare.
