Friends - Rough Draft
Author: Meridian Zuriel


They come, they go
As long as the cash flows
But donít get broke
Theyíre on the next train with smoke
You know each other one day
The next, youíre strangers
The user used to chat away
Had a lot of gobbledygook to say
Until the following day
When the cat tied that tongue

Ooo theyíre a dime a dozen
So many in fatigues
And yet some of us
Allow ourselves to get duped
Again and again
And again and again
Does it ever end?

Give ťm wheels
To get from point A to point B
Like we were obligated
Now weíre hated
Especially if we lent something
And never got repaid
Lifeís burns are 3rd degree
What I consider a privilege
You say it is required of me
Iím not required to be your taxi
Iím not required to be nice
But youíre required
To have some manners my dear
The words thank you
Have yet to reach my brown ear

You already know
This ainít no compliment
Iím fishing for
Courtesy should come automatic
After all,
Youíre the one
Outside of my door
Asking a favor
Since youíve received
From our neighbors

------- Author's Notes -------

We gotta know what we have
Before it is and they are gone
Appreciate the treasure
While itís in your hands
Thank God for the rainbow
Enjoy the picture perfect
A blessing given to some of us
Who truly donít deserve it
