He Makes Himself Sugar, the Flies Eat Him Up

“See here’s a man who is quite generous found, / His sunshine friends are gathered thick around, / From many parts they come, both far and near, / He fully feasts with them all with much good cheer; / To all who call, he makes himself their friend, / With feelings kind, he doth his money lend: / They eat him up - when some help he’s wishing, / His numerous friends are fond among the missing."—Barber, 1857
