A FRIEND

 

Be a friend. You don’t need money:

Just a disposition sunny;

Just the wish to help another

Get along some way or other;

Just a kindly hand extended

Out to one who’s unbefriended;

Just the will to give or lend,

This will make you someone’s friend.

 

 

Be a friend. The pay is bigger

[Though not written by a figure]

Than is earned by people clever

In what’s merely self-endeavour.

You’ll have friends instead of neighbours

For the profits of your labours;

You’ll be richer in the end

Than a prince, if you’re a friend.
