‘Until the grave took him’

The young man grew up and he paid normal dues. He wore many hats and walked in other’s shoes. 

He paid his taxes and performed civic duty. For wife and lover he found himself a beauty.

In the presence of a lady, he would tip his hat. He took care of his heart so he didn’t grow fat.

By virtue of gentle actions, he stood upstanding and right. Enemies he had few, for his morals he held tight.

Through good times and bad, he was loyal to the end. To his wife, family, and employer he was a best friend.

Never once during his life did he act upon a whim. He always did his best until the grave took him.
