How Boring We Would Be If We All Were The Same - Poem by Francis Duggan

So few ever see life in a similar way
We are very different in truth one can say
Then how boring we would be for want of a better name
If in our thinking and ways we were close to the same
Since you in your thinking are quite different to me
This should not make us foes would you not agree
That this does not make one of us right and one of us wrong
If to different political views we do belong
That in some of our ways we are different happens to be true
Though in other ways i am quite similar to you
Though your views on many things different to mine
You have your opinions and this suits me fine
How boring we would be for want of a better name
If in our ways and our thinking we all were the same.
