Little Sammy* - Poem by Pete O'H

Little sammy was a young boy of ten
I knew sam before I knew when was when
Time after time, we would play and then play
Time after time, and then day after day,
Like playmates who were made to be best friends
Every day was much fun, play and pretend

Sammy and I hung out; thought we were cool
And all this while, we were just in grade school
More and more things, we both did together
Many many things; birds of a feather
You'd be surprised to know that we weren't twins

Soon enough, we were no longer just boys
Having fun with girls, rather than just toys
Over high school, we did in fact stay friends
Though now we weren't sure it'd be till the end

He wanted to go to college with me
I thought we should meet new friends; shouldn't we?
Me and sammy did then go together
Since he wouldn't hear what I thought better
Eventually, we fought and did part
Lo, how sammy took it did break my heart
First letter; each line; why I hate myself
