Since You Only Judge Me - Poem by Francis Duggan

Since you only judge me for my lack of success
No mister You I am not out to impress
We look at life one might say quite differently
And on what constitutes success you and I don't agree
The people with heaps of money to you matter most
To these sort of people you do drink your toast
For human compassion you never allow
To publicly proclaimed high achievers you have chosen to bow
On life you have your own ideas and that suits me fine
And your sense of values are different to mine
And you air your opinions and that's a good thing
But 'tis not of your heroes that I wish to sing
We look at life one could say quite differently
And so little in common between you and me.
