Believe It If You Wish - Poem by Francis Duggan
Methuselah 'tis said lived to be very old
Nine centuries of years or so it has been told
Perhaps another myth as it does seem that way
Believe it if you wish or dismiss it as hearsay.
Samson was the World's strongest ever man stronger than the strongest bear
But he weakened very fast when Dalila cut his hair
Believe it if you wish as it hardly does ring true
Though what is truthful to some is a myth to me or you.
The children of Lir by their stepmother turned into swans A Celtic myth from centuries ago
Though others may tell you this well may not be so
For some people it would seem would believe anything
They even do believe that a frog became a king.
Even mythological stories a few happily will believe
For some people as we know are not hard to deceive
And believe it if you wish though many may say lies
But everything sounds and appears quite different to different ears and eyes.
