Good Businessman

Let each man put himself before all others,
To profit more, and more enjoy his living,
Then can he justly praise his equal brothers
And pay no heed to lowly creeds of giving.

Let “more and more and more” be his grand motto,
And more that is the best his one desire;
He’ll work for what he wants, not ’cause he’s got to,
And he himself will push him and inspire.

Let high productive effort be his standard,
Good Businessman bright symbol of his mind;
He’ll flood the world with wealth—his selfish banner—
And know that to himself he has been kind.
