Poem: Buy a Name, Not Gold

Good SamaritanA good name they say is better than Gold
Buy yourself a good name and not Gold
You wonder and ask me why?                A man with gold dies,                             It will never take long,                              For him to be forgotten.                         A man with a good name dies.                   His memories linger on.                      

Buy yourself a good name,                 And you have a golden name.             Buy yourself a good name,                 Your name is priced above gold.         Buy yourself a good name,                You will be of a golden memory.         Buy yourself a good name,                   And it will be said of you that you lived a golden life.                               Buy yourself a good name,                 For only a good name lingers on.
