Serious Face - Poem by Francis Duggan

To those who know or know of him known as Serious Face
Where laughter is one who does feel out of place
So honestly serious and one free of guile
A pity he finds it hard even to smile
Yes honest as honest as the word can be
But sadly for him he takes life far too seriously
The great gift of laughter he does not possess
He will never be ambassador for happiness
In his early to mid twenties in his life's physical prime
Yet one who does not know how to have a good time
As honest as they come but for him sad to say
The lady of charm never does smile his way
Without friends or a partner and always on his own
By the nickname of Serious Face he is known.

    An idea taken full spectrum...youth is wasted on the young. Serious doesn't mean competent. Sparks thought, thx... (Report) Reply
