In His Early Twenties Only Twenty Three - Poem by Francis Duggan

His financial affairs in a horrible mess
Alas the poor bloke could not cope with the stress
The financial company had re-possessed his car
When you are in trouble you wonder where your friends are
His crosses in life for him too heavy to bear
And he had lived for too long on the brink of despair
With day to day living he was struggling to cope
Of a happier life he had given up hope
When his girlfriend forsook him he was without a friend
The reason that he brought his life to an end
In his early twenties only twenty three
He was found in the wood hanging from low branch of a tree
Now out of his misery at peace he now lay
The poor luckless bloke who was buried today.
