Happy Jim - Poem by Francis Duggan

Not one with large amounts of money to his name
He is a stranger to success and fame
Yet one that you never will hear complain
From grumbling he says there is nothing to gain
He lives up to his nickname of Happy Jim
As nothing ever seems for to bother him
Single without the worry of children or wife
Contented and healthy in the prime of his life
In his mid twenties and time on his side
With a few lovers to keep him sexually satisfied
One who likes drinking and music and song
In the pub he always join in the sing along
Wherever Jim is at joy is to be found
As he carries it with him and shares it around.
