Where Everyone Knows Everyone Your Business Not Your Own - Poem by Francis Duggan

Where everyone knows everyone your business not your own
And every thing about you by everyone is known
And even family secrets cannot be kept ahide
From your own small community in the quiet countryside
To where everyone knows everyone the Seasons come and go
And everything about you others do seem to know
And about them you know everything that's how it seems to be
And you feel happy to live in your small community
Where everyone knows everyone it does come as no surprise
That everyone grows older but few seem to grow wise
Where everyone knows everyone newcomers feel out of place
And there's a latent mistrust of those of different Race
And everything about you is known by everyone
'Tis a small World we live in when all is said and done.
