One Without A Tribe - Poem by Francis Duggan

He never harms anyone lives in his own way
And he does not care of what others of him say
One without a tribe he does his own thing
And the praises of anyone he never does sing

To him everyone is the same white, black or brown
And he never looks up to anyone or on anyone never looks down
Quite happy with his lot he never yearns for wealth and renown
He has no wish to be known as a man about town

Not a member of any local community club
And he never does socialize at the local pub
Not interested in any sports or in football
Such things never seem to interest him at all

Yet in is own way he is one who is kind
And people in trouble a friend in him does find
He risked his life to save Mr and Mrs Zoff's baby daughter in a house fire
And in gratefulness of singing his praises they never do tire

He has no wish that his should become a great name
And he has no desire for wealth, success and fame
Yet the better traits of humanity in him you will find
For he is down to earth, honorable, noble and kind.
