Your Friends You Come To Know When You Are Down - Poem by Francis Duggan

From life we learn a bit every day
And for our mistakes always some price to pay
And like Abba's song, the winner takes it all
For one to rise so many have to fall,
Since few wish to know the loser of the town
Your friends you come to know when you are down
The winner is the one the majority wish to know
And compassion only the compassionate can show
For those who are in need of sympathy
'Tis a rare gift the gift of empathy
Your friend will not desert you in your moment of need
And such a friend is surely a friend indeed
Still the biological clocks on our lives ticking away
And for all of us a final night and day.
