Out Of Place - Poem by Francis Duggan

They did seem nice enough people with them there was nothing wrong
But their subjects of conversation did not suit you a few hours in their company did seem long
You felt happy on leaving the party for you not a good night out
We relate best to those of similar interests of this there is little doubt

You did not feel happy among them though they would never be your foes
We are happier among the like minded each to their own one must suppose
I can understand how you felt how you did not enjoy the night
Some social gatherings we are part of for us does not seem at all right.

Though to make yourself seem at ease among them your very best you did try
That we are happier among those of similar interests is a fact that none can deny
None of them you did not know that well among them you felt out of place
Even at a community party for some challenges for to face

There are many tribes in every town we are not of the one club
You feel happier among your mates drinking at the local pub
You were among nice people though you did not feel at ease in their company
We are happiest among the like minded is how it seems to be.
