By Charles Mackay
(English Chartist poet, 18141889)
|YOU have no enemies, you say?|
| Alas! my friend, the boast is poor;|
|He who has mingled in the fray|
| Of duty, that the brave endure,|
|Must have made foes! If you have none,|| 5|
|Small is the work that you have done.|
|Youve hit no traitor on the hip,|
|Youve dashed no cup from perjured lip,|
|Youve never turned the wrong to right,|
|Youve been a coward in the fight.|| 10|
