'Everyone's Friend'

by Henry Lawson

Henry Lawson

"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."
