Loud Voice - Poem by Francis Duggan

I think his rear end is where his head should be
As he does not seem a very bright spark to me
His booming voice you don't need a hearing aid to hear
In fact one might need to wear ear muffs when he is standing near.

In the Local Community he is well known
But he is never referred to as one of our own
Although he has lived in the Town since the first day of his life
A young local man with a young local wife.

He is not the most popular man in the Town
And he will never even know local renown
Like all braggarts he makes sure that he is well known
But respect to his kind by not many is shown

Of his type so many do easily tire
In a braggart and loudmouth there is not much to admire
He is not very happy with his lot 'twould seem
Perhaps he is suffering from low self esteem.

You won't need to strain your ears to hear what he has to say
And his nickname of 'Loud Voice' seems to suit him okay
But some who know him quite well say he can be kind
And worse than him would not be that hard to find.
