The Family Man - Poem by Francis Duggan

He does not yearn for to be the toast of the town
Or he has never daydreamed of widespread renown
Quite happy with his lot his type becoming rare
Down to earth and unassuming and so self aware
To live a decent life he does the best he can
Devoted to his wife and three young children the family man
Negative things of others you never hear him say
And to help those in need of help he goes out of his way
One not seen very often in the local pub
Or not a member of any social grouping or any sporting club
Though not hard to like he is not that well known
Yet as a person in a class of his own
He rises for work before dawn every working day
And he surely does work hard for his take home pay.
