Kate Bago - Poem by Francis Duggan

In her early fifties Kate big Bill Bago's wife
She does have a face that is saddened from life
They had one offspring six years ago their son Dave
From a drug overdose went to an early grave
In Kate's light brown hair there are some strands of gray
And clearly she has known of a better day
The death of her son to her a terrible loss
In life she has been burdened with a heavy cross
Her husband Billwith his mates of the local football team's fan club
After work he spends a few hours drinking at the local pub
And she sits at home alone watching t v
How lonely and sad for some life seems to be
For her years slim and attractive there can be little doubt
But in her life she has much for to feel sad about.
