A true friend.


What is a true friend? Try and find out,
When you’ve got money there’s never a doubt
They’ll slap your shoulder and praise you high
And say your a wonderful guy
Now comes the time and you are broke and everything seems to them a joke
They’ll walk on the other side of the road
Not for them to share your load.
But a true friend will share each sorrow and care
Won’t mind a bit if your clothes are bare
Will light up a fag and say “take a draw”
Have one himself and then give you more
Will lie for you, cry for you
If need be die for you
That’s what I call a true friend.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
