He's A Better Man Than Me - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though he is one who does know of a life of poverty
In an out of sort or grumpy mood him I have yet to see
He carries on his life's battle with the outmost bravery
Without trying to patronize him he's a better man than me
To the financial lure of a wealthy man he lost his children and wife
That money does speak every language does seem so true to life
Out of work and on the dole on the poor side of the town
But he feels happy just the same he does not let things get him down
He does not seem bitter with life in any sort of way
I'm better off than many are I have often heard him say
Although he struggles to survive under financial strain
He always shows the brighter side he never does complain
About the life he has to lead his lot of poverty
He is one that I do admire as a better man than me.
