Love Upside Down - Poem by Francis Duggan

You cannot love everyone you know in your side of the town
And some say that hate can be love upside down
That when love ends in acrimony ill feelings set in
In love as in life 'tis not easy to win
Something often said and repeated again
Your best friend today as your best friend may not remain
Though true friendships in death only ever end
Your true friend to you will remain your true friend
Still friendship from love is a different thing
And though of the praises of love many do like to sing
Where love was dislike often does seem to grow
Of the ways of love so little I know
The more we know the less we know we know as some like to say
And from life we do learn something new every day.
