Old Dino - Poem by Francis Duggan

Old Dino one of the happiest people in the town
He is always smiling yet to see him feeling down
An octogenarian he is eighty three
He first saw light of day in Rome in Italy
Dino does not have children or he never had a wife
But he is one who is happy in his life
He speaks good English but the Italian accent with him does remain
And he always seems happy one who never complain
About him he has such a likeable way
Old Dino does make a new friend every day
It can be said of him he has the inner glow
Old Dino he is one who is nice to know
Though born and raised in far away Rome
Footscray in Victoria to Dino is home.
