In praise we raise the banner high o'er head
To one who taught, not just in useless words
That go unmarked like flocks of wandering birds,
But in a way that lives when these are dead.
He taught a thousand men or more, who now
Reflect the light he shone on them, like great
And brilliant mirrors that only radiate
With equal light as he did them endow.
In all sincerity, humanity
Gives praise and laurels to this man, who by
His faith in God and them, did rectify
All suffering and pain, and set them free.
To Dr. George M. Coates, the dean of ears,
And nose and throat, we give our praise and cheers.
