Thought Can Make A Fool Of Us - Poem by Francis Duggan

Many of the wealthy and famous to the ways of time have gone
In their passing they proved to be expendable life without them goes on
Their wealth and their money did not keep them alive
The sharp scythe of Life's Reaper none known to survive
The one who does not respect money or fame
The lives of the wealthy and poor to life's Reaper the same
The fact is all of us humans are born to die
And as is said of fact it never does lie
Many who thought they were irreplaceable in cemeteries lay
And life without them it does go on today
Some of us with our sense of self importance can get carried away
That thought can make a fool of us seems true to say
We age rather quickly beyond our life's prime
And eventually we all become victims of time.
