My friend for whom I keep a spot
Close within my heart protected
From the critical darts I aim at my other friends
(Friends who are fat, selfish, rude
Or in other ways do not deserve
The attentions of my pleasant mood)
Has quite a bit of nerve.
She told me today she thought of me
As selfish, self-absorbed, and distant
Easily distracted during intimate conversations
And, though we’ve been BFFs for years,
Considered me barely an acquaintance
Not worth nearly as much consideration
As her other so fond friends.
I wonder why I thought her so special.
She, after all, is quite selfish and rude
And in this last year has gained a pound or two.
I think next time I’m in a pleasant party mood
I’ll call some of my other friends instead of her.
