:) Friendship's Costs Poem by Bill Grace


Friendships costs are many but the greatest pain is
Discovery of friend as counterfeit: lover, wife, acquaintance,
class mate, colleague - it matters not
Made of convenience, self, organizational need, usery:
The thousand softer metals that never stay the wear of time,
The least alluring often proving best.

Be careful in belief of this word - friend.
