Only The Good Die Young - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Twas many and many a year ago
and this saying we all do know
it has been sung and rhymed by so many
by those who made fortunes to not a penny...

The saying goes as we all do know
'Only The Good Die Young' the cliches go
I watched my elders proclaim this sagely
all gathered agreed whole heartedly nodded wisely...

And yet I know as realizations grow
And you know it's true that the bad die low
But nobody notices and nobody cares
Except very few who hide their tears...?

Knew I could not on this saying hold my tongue
and truth be said most are glad they are dead and done...
for some were born wicked bad eggs rotten vile
best said we say no more about sad past lives of trial...?
