A poem about fair weather friends
In time of prosperity friends will be plenty;
In time of adversity not one in twenty.
~ James Howell

For show are those who would stand by our side
Who laugh and play and tickle our pride
But comes the rain, storms or showers
Not one stands with us, in our loneliest hour

When the sun shines on us, surrounded we are
The yes-men and glad-friends, come from near and from far
But when things turn badly, or we put on a frown
All scatter like flies, not one stays around

Yet we continue with these friends of ours
Knowing they’ll leave us at the first signs of showers
But forgive them we must, for it’s our way
And when they need us, we too cannot stay
