A short poem about the value of true friends
TWO KINDS OF FRIENDS
Having too much money can be a pain
For greedy folk will hang around
Not because the care for you
But for what they think they'll gain.
These so-called friends are ever eager
To drop a well-known name
As they seek to raise their status
By sharing in another's fame.
True friends are there in the hardest times
Sharing laughter, grief and tears.
They know the best and worst of us,
They're loyal and steadfast over the years.
They're quick to help and slow to judge
Even if you're stoney broke
You know they're always there for you
These wonderful loving folk.
