On Plagiarists - Poem by Francis Duggan

They are of no use to the Wordsmith Trade those who plagiarize
Their lowly sort of behaviour unwarranted and unwise
A well know plagiarist even won a major literary prize
Though above the most ordinary of ordinary such people never rise
For their sense of low self esteem all plagiarists are known
They steal others work and claim it for their own
Without any sense of honour or any sense of shame
For them only disgrace for them never fame
Of a plagiarist nothing positive for one for to say
Far too many of their sort in the Literary World of today
To the words of others online they put their own name
A thief and a plagiarist are one of the same
Plagiarism is dishonourable and quite a shameful thing
And of the praises of such people you won't hear anyone sing.
