The Serious Family - Poem by Francis Duggan

As honest as can be and quite free of guile
Yet Leann is one who finds it hard to smile
Her primary going children Joe and Sue and her husband Stan
In their ways in many ways quite like Leann
Not the type of family who brings joy to anyone's day
One would swear for to smile that they do have to pay
When you greet them they nod without smiling with nothing to say
It is each to their own since life is this way
They may not have worries but they do not seem carefree
The life of any party they never will be
As a family when out walking a smile with them they never do bring
As if for to smile is an unnatural thing
Whenever i meet them i bid them a good day
They nod without smiling with nothing to say.
