Friend In Need - Poem by Terry Collett
O’Brien went to the same school
as you and used to thieve from
local shops and kid’s pockets and
bags and from the teacher’s desk
and probably from his mother and
father if he was at home asleep in
his chair and he used to take things
openly from the tuck shop without
paying and borrow things and not
give them back. O’Brien was your
best friend at school but never stole
from you for some reason anyhow.
You often wonder what happened
to him and what he’s doing now.
