Bro. Ajani

By Sydney P. Brown

GOODWILL, is the monarch of this house.
Men, unacquainted, enter, shake hands, exchange
greetings, and depart friends.
Cordiality exists among all who abide within.

I am the eminent expression of friendship.
Character and temperament change under my dominant power.
Lives once touched by me become tuned, and are
thereafter amiable, kindly, fraternal.

I inspire the musician to play noble sentiments,
and assist the chemist to convert ungenerous
personalities into individuals of great worth.
I destroy all ignoble impulses.
I constantly invoke principles which make for common
brotherhood and the echo resounds in all communities
and princely men are thereby recognized.
Education, health, music, encouragement, sympathy,
laughter - all these are species of interest
given on self invested capital.

Tired moments find me a delightful treat, hours of
sorrow, a shrine of understanding - at all times
I am faithful to the creed of companionship.

To a few, I am the castle of dreams - ambitious,
successful, hopeful dreams.
To many, I am the poetic palace where human feeling
is rhymed to celestial motives; to the great
majority, I am the treasury of good fellowship.
In fact, I am the college of friendship, the university of brotherly love;
the school for the better making of men.
