Lucky Are Those - Poem by Francis Duggan

Lucky are those without designs on fame
Who never wish theirs would become a great name
In words or deeds they never drag anyone down
And live their quiet lives on their side of the town
Their own praises in public they never does sing
They mind their own business and do their own thing
For greater success in the big World they feel no wish to compete
Everyday life's challenges in their own quiet ways they do meet
Good people as they are of self never brag
For a better World to live in they carry the flag
Of them in newspapers one never does read
It is only by good example that they does lead
Withoutdesigns on fame they are lucky indeed
For a better World to live in they does plant the seed.
