THERE GOES AN ALPHAMAN

By Peter Clarke

 

There goes a man of high impulse,

of princely mien and grace.

There goes a man of humble faith,

a credit to his race.

There goes a man of conscious vast,

with will to reach his goal.

There goes a man of lordly rank

of heroes stock and soul.

There goes a man of noble cast

whom hardship cannot break.

There goes a man in merit clad,

whom duty won't forsake.

There goes a man of culture verse,

who holds a sportsman's creed.

There goes a man too vigilant

to bow to lust or greed.

There goes a man whose life

is spent in service, not in scorn.

There goes a man whose majesty

shines like a may time morn.

There goes a man who is a friend

to love and duty truth.

There goes a man to help uplift

the lives of wholesome youth.

There goes a man with industry

and faith at his command.

There goes the best man in or out

for he's an Alpha Man.
