His Daydream - Poem by Francis Duggan

His daydream in show-business was to go far
A sensation on Broadway a celebrated movie star
Famous in every Country with millions of fans Worldwide
A super star in his twenties with time on his side
He would make his mum and dad so proud of their son
A leading actor in blockbuster movies the World's number one
Young women in their thousands are screaming his name
The once poor boy of the suburbs knows of Worldwide fame
In his early thirties with a wife and two young children in Victoria's Swan Hill
Working in a factory sometimes doing overtime to pay his every bill
And still he daydreams of better things in life
For himself and his two young daughters and his devoted wife
And though his dream as a teenager has yet to come true
He lives as a good family man and a good person and for this credit he is due.
