everything he had he gave

.
Benjamin was generous
a man above all men for us
the guy that you could go to
when your ship has run aground
.
a kind word rested on his lips
for anyone down on their chips
and sage advice was handed out
like cool rain falling down
.
everything he had he gave
money, shelter, food, first-aid…
he passed away in poverty
the richest man around
