For the sucker born each minute
There’s a con born every hour,
But blessedly each day is born
The independent power,
Who’s neither host nor parasite,
Who’s neither lord nor bower,
Who keeps his mind with sober art,
Before no king would cower;
He earns his take and pays his due—
A man, a sovereign tower.
