Friendship Funerals

written by: Fredrick Martyn



Friendship funerals

Rest in peace camaraderie

From amity calamity

To many different eulogies:


“Feelings got involved”

“They left when I was down”

“Our friendship was toxic”

“We’re just so different now”


Wait! – open that casket!

I think this one’s still alive!

But who am I to say

Up to them to decide
