His Ex Acquaintance - Poem by Francis Duggan

For his ex acquaintance in his heart no longer a place
Since the day that he did punch him in the face
Him he can forgive and him he can forget
And the loss of what he thought could have been a friend to him no cause for regret,
Had he been a friend in the first place him he could forgive
And even without him as an acquaintance doubtless he can live
He was a stranger to him in the first place and as a stranger to him he'll remain
And to him he'll be a stranger if ever he meet him again,
He punched him in the face without provocation though him he did not hurt at all
But to him 'tis not a pleasant memory not one he may wish to recall
Something that he was not expecting some can behave in a strange way
Even for knowing the wrong sort of an acquaintance there can be a price for to pay
The acquaintance he knew only last month he treats as a stranger today
For knowing the wrong sort of people there has to be some price to pay.
