by Charles Teters
I have lived the life of a Man of the world,
I have seen all of its ups and downs,
I have shaken the hand of the fair weather friend,
I have seen fortunes, smiles, and frowns.
but I have always found that if you would give
to the world the best you have
the best will surely come back to you.
So if there be any of the many
that I have befriended when across the big span
let them mark on my tombstone — “HERE LIES A MAN.”
