FAIRWEATHER FRIEND

IT BEATS ME THAT THERE ARE THOSE FAIRWEATHER FRIENDS, WHO FIND TIME TO LAP AROUND WHEN THE CLIMATE SUITS THEM.

CACHINNATE TO THE TUNE OF THEIR OWN JOKES, INDULGE IN HOSPITALITY AND NEVER CHOKE.

DECEPTIVELY CONCERNING THEMSELVES WITH YOUR CARE, WHILE PASSING THE TIME ON YOUR SOFA’S AND CHAIRS.

IT BEATS ME THAT THERE ARE THOSE FAIRWEATHER FRIENDS

WHO ONLY REMEMBER YOU NOW AND AGAIN.

THEY FEEL THEIR DOING YOU A FAVOUR WHEN THEY DROP BY

LOOKING FOR GOSSIP, THEIR MOUTHS FULL OF LIES.

NEVER AROUND WHEN YOU NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY.

CAN’T WAIT TO GET RID OF THEM, YOU YAWN AND YOU SIGH.

IT BEATS ME THA THERE ARE THOSE FAIRWEATHER FRIENDS

WHO LAND ON YOUR DOORSTEP, WITH MEGA PROBLEMS

YOU FIND YOURSELF BEING AN AGONY AUNT,

WHILE THE CRY THOSE CROCODILE TEARS, TO SOFTEN YOUR HEART

THEY KNOW FULLY WELL THAT IF NOT FOR THEIR TROUBLES FOR YOU THEY’D NEVER CARE.

THE FAIRWEATHER FRIEND, WHO FORGETS YOU WHEN LIFE IS FAIR!
