One Of The Town's Best Workmen

From worker to fore person he worked his way
One of the town's best employees was buried today
One who did work hard for his every take home pay
But that this does not matter now is only true to say
In his early seventies divorced from his wife
One who never did know of the easy life
At his graveside his son and his grandchildren for him in tears
Though on his own he had lived his twilight years
One of the most honest and hardest workers of the town
Yet such good traits never brings to one renown
To his higher self in life he remained true
Though people like he was never receive the credit they are due
Six years ago he retired as a fore person one who earned his every pay
One of the town's best workmen was buried today.
