How Will The World Get On Without Him - Poem by Francis Duggan

How will the World get on without him on the day he draw his final life's breath
Or will he be the first ever person to survive the reaper and death?
He is one who has a huge ego he loves himself that bit too much it would seem
One thing that he does not suffer from and that is a sense of low self esteem.

When he is with the Town's high achievers he is in his element one might say
Such occasions he does seem to cherish and never fail to make his day
He looks down on every poor bugger this egotistical new millionaire
'Tis sad to think people like him are many and wise people becoming rare.

He socialized with us in the pub till a few years back but he always had big ideas
And to be seen in our company nowadays he feels his wealthy mates he may displease
But we are quite happy without him can't even say he was nice to know
One supposes we should accept people as we find them as people to our lives they come and they go.

How will the World get on without him since he feels he is one with whom none can compare
He once drunk with us at the Local but since he has become a new millionaire
Our company of him not worthy success it has gone to his head
Small minds do not have room for wisdom of him that can surely be said.
