everyone's friend

“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.”
