Selfish People Like You - Poem by Francis Duggan

The praises of others you never do sing
To live for self only is such a selfish thing
Your selfish gene will stay in you till the moment you do die
There is far more to human life than me, myself and I
If you do not know how to give then you cannot receive
On such a saying I for one does surely believe
Those born with compassion are lucky indeed
For their future good karma they do plant the good seed
The kind and compassionate they know how to share
Of the feelings of others they are always aware
But self centred people are stuck in the me
Beyond their own needs in life they cannot see
And sad to think selfish people like you to be found everywhere
There are millions if not billions in the big World out there.
