Whenever my friends say

We are your true friends

Emotional blackmailers

I award them this term

Don't I know who they are?

I tolerate their selfishness

Can never tolerate betrayals

Every day make one friend

Three years only a thousand

What about other Six Arabs

I regularly revise my selections

Erase or distance them very soon

On its own vacancy gets advertised

A get hundreds of applications

This time I aim to choose the best

This is the only sacred relation

Whether a child or an orphan

Everyone at least have friends

If they can't make us feel happy

Why shouldn't I try, Who can

����
