Joe Feels He Is A Lucky Fellow - Poem by Francis Duggan

Joe feels he is a lucky fellow as lucky as one could wish to be
He says i do not know how it is to be homeless or to live the life of a refugee
With a beautiful wife and two lovely healthy children a boy of nine and a girl of ten
Joe feels he is very lucky one of the luckiest of men
Yet to see the man unhappy always a smile on his face
For self pity or for sadness in his mind there is no space
In the pub he drinks in moderation never goes home drunk to his children and his wife
Such a good husband and father with a happy outlook on life
He is often in the town park on Summer evenings playing catch football with his children Tom and Sue and their mother his wife Ann
As well as being a hard worker and a good person he is also a good family man
One who does not take life very seriously he enjoys a few good laughs every day
He is one who makes friends rather easily since about him he has a nice way
He enjoys a few beers in his local where he is well loved and well known
And one can say of Joe in his early thirties that he is in a class of his own.
