Here's To The Man :

A rather cynical but traditional poem about honesty in the face of dishonesty. Verses were found in several different buildings.

Here's to the man
That rocketh his child
And rocketh and rocketh his own.
But many a man rocketh
Another man's child
When he thinks he's rocking his own.

Here's to the man
That kisses his wife
And kisses and kisses his own.
But many a man kisses
Another man's wife
When he ought to be kissing his own.
