A Poem to a Friend Who Deceived me


I gave you my friendship in all its innocence,
You took it and trampled it in the dust,
Later they called an ambulance,
You had desecrated my love and my trust.

When I was discharged from the hospital
You were fawning about my knees,
You thought that I'd have you back again,
You clung like an infectious disease.

We don't have many years on this planet -
Let's cherish the friends who are true;
A lot of my time has been wasted
By a person who looks just like you!

At school they tried to teach me forgiveness
And said it would conquer Hate,
I never understood their meaning
And now, I'm afraid, it's too late! !

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
