He has no enemies, you say?
      My friend, your boast is poor:
He who hath mingled in the fray
      Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes. If he has none
      Small is the work that he has done.
He has hit no traitor on the hip;
      He has cast no cup from tempted lip;
He has never turned the wrong to right,
      He has been a coward in the fight.
