You Win Some And Lose Some - Poem by Francis Duggan

You win some and lose some in life why pretend
Not everyone you know will become your friend
Your foe of tomorrow may be your friend of today
'Tis part of being human as some like to say
You may not have many friends on your side of the town
But your true friend will stand by you when you are financially down
When those who were your friends when the good times you had known
No longer wish to know you and you they do disown
'Tis said money speaks every language that few would deny
But why money cannot buy you a true friend no need to ask why
Your true friend to help you out for you will travel far
Since he or she does love you for the person you are
We learn from living human life is this way
Your foe of tomorrow may be your friend of today.
