These So Called Wonderful Positive People - Poem by Francis Duggan

These so called wonderful positive people they talk of the things you can do
They tell you that you can make choices as if it were all up to you
If you should be poor or be wealthy they say 'tis for you to decide
I do feel that they are like a pain though I'd rather not say in what side.

Maybe they should be sent to Third World Countries where hunger and famine are rife
And advise young starving parents and their young starving children on the way to a far better life
Since they say it is up to every individual to know failure or enjoy success
Who knows they may solve World poverty as their wisdom they freely express.

I see them as judgemental people as people they always compare
They look down on every unfortunate poor person and look up to every millionaire
I wonder if they even realize it that inequality they do embrace
Without their ideas and their thinkings the World to live in would be a better place.

These so called wonderful positive people in fairness they ought to get real
Just one question I will ask of them for to live do you have to beg borrow or steal?
You air your opinions quite freely and to others you offer your advice
But have you to beg for to feed yourself and your family and do your children cry out for rice?
