use below, the has The by enters it up Lost--A Friend By SHYNAUNA GALES (In memory of George Betters.) The politicians and town officials Are quiet in their den, Reliving an old acquaintance. For they have lost a friend. The children on the playground, The professional and business men Are deeply moved in sorrow, For they have lost a friend. The drunkard and the loafer-Without loafer-Without a cent to spend Slowly bow heir heads, For they have lost a friend. The one who reached the top And the man who just has been --Express their sincere sympathy,' For they have lost a friend. And although he's just sleeping Where joys never end, I know. God and the angels Have gained our dearest friend.
