His Fond Memories Of Warrnambool - Poem by Francis Duggan
At the pub he talks of the days when his hair was light brown
When he was a young man in Warrnambool Town
With his young mates he surfed and played Aussie Rules Football
Such good memories of what was he has to recall.
From Warrnambool he now does live far away
Where the years have left him looking weary and gray
He tells his grandchildren attending primary school
Of his happy younger years in Warrnambool
It would seem that happier times he has known
Divorced from his wife he is now on his own
In his one bedroom flat in his life's twilight years
His fond memories of Warrnambool still has him close to tears
In his sixty eight year and time ticking on
He often recall his prime years his prime years long gone.
