The Young Millionaire May Be Living Today - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of a massive heart attack he did die suddenly
A young enough man with a young wife and family
On his birthday last August he turned thirty three
A young millionaire in ways financially.

His wife and four year old daughter won't be in poverty
In their two storey home in the town by the sea
And you who read this do not pity his wife
For with his money she can enjoy the good life.

Perhaps money the cause of his shorter life span
For though tall and well built he was quite an overweight man
Far too little exercise and too much to drink and eat
Of beer and of chocolate and far too much meat.

The praises of money many well may sing
But too much of anything not a good thing
The young millionaire may be living today
Had he to cycle to work and sweat for his pay.
