"Everyone's Friend"

Henry Lawson, 1910

      "Nobody's enemy save his own" —
             (What shall it be in the end?) —
      Still by the nick-name he is known —
             "Everyone's Friend."

      "Nobody's Enemy" stands alone
             While he has money to lend,
      "Nobody's Enemy" holds his own,
             "Everyone's Friend"

      "Nobody's Enemy" down and out —
             Game to the end —
      And he mostly dies with no one about —
             "Everyone's Friend."
