A Breach Of Friendship

Rating: 4.5
‘TIS friendship's test to guard the name
Of him you love from all attack,
As you are to his face, the same
To be when you're behind his back.

Now good old loyal Jimmy Green,
A traitor to you have I been;
As false as Arnold to my trust,
Your name I've trampled in the dust.

Loved the satirical tone of the poem. 'Perhaps I should have argued there And proved her charges most unfair; But it was two, as I have said, And I was tired and wished for bed; So by the short route chose to steer, And all I said was: 'Yes, my dear.'' - The poet honestly confesses his failure to do what he was supposed to do. At the same time he clearly depicts how tiring it could be to live with a nagging wife!

'Men who have won their share of fame, That each one bears an honored name. Perhaps I should have argued there And proved her charges most unfair; '..are vry thought provoking lines. Enjoyed the lovely poem.

This was a pleasant narrative to read and wryly humorous for me, but as I finished it struck me it was lighter in feel than the first stanza led me to anticipate. -GK
