Sad As It May Seem - Poem by Francis Duggan

He is anti social that much he admit
And he lacks in humor and he lacks in wit
With his human frailties he constantly fight
The one who will never be in the limelight

Only in his mid twenties and in his life's prime
Ahead of him one might say there is much time
But he will never be admired as man about town
Since his human frailties keep dragging him down

Unmarried and childless to few he is known
He does not have friends and he lives on his own
I only know of him as him i seldom see
But he seems as harmless as harmless can be

He may never father children and never have a wife
And working does seem his one passion in life
To chat up a woman he does seem too shy
The tag of the loner to him does apply

I do not see him often but whenever we meet
We say hi in passing in the park or on the street
But those who know him better say he is his own foe
And sad as it may seem this well may be so.
