The Whisperers - Poem by Francis Duggan

He brought to his friend a bouquet of roses on St Valentine's Day
Which did not please the neighbours in whispers they did say
That a man should give another man a gift of flowers is against all Natural law
Such narrow minded people their own conclusions draw

From a simple gift of friendship on the one day of the year
When heartfelt words such as I love you one does expect to hear
And that they give flowers to their own wives to them seems quite okay
But such a gift from man to man is not the natural way

Of professing friendship in human terms at least not in their eyes
Some people as they grow older they do not grow more wise
Some adult men admire their rifles like they once admired their toys
Physically quite macho looking but with the immaturity of boys.

He gives a bouquet of roses as proof of his love and friendship to his greatest ever pal
On the day of love and roses on the feast day of St Val
But the whisperers in the neighbourhood say something about this is not right
Some people are behind the times and their souls need much more light
