The Praises Of Everyone - Poem by Francis Duggan

The praises of everyone seems hard to sing
For how can you praise someone who has done the wrong thing
Who has harmed others in some sort of a way
Such people for their sins should be made to pay
Yet the praises of many good people are never sung
And many unsung heroes some old and some young
Good people who do a good deed every day
Who for to help others go out of their way
Great heroes us ordinary people create
The wealthy celebrities we celebrate
But the quiet achiever we tend to ignore
Like the noble unsung hero who lives next door
Yet sad to think some guilty of serious crime
Have even been honoured in song and in rhyme.
