Fairweather friends

Happy like a dog with two tails
Jumping around bond bosom trail
For a friend I always bend the rule,

A million friends and a million brew
Not even one, when the storm grew
Could help or aid my breakthrough.

I’ve been bruised and shackled in pools
By drowning friends, I tried to pull
After all that, I stayed as a fool

I thought the door swings in two ways
During the thick, thin and wrinkles
A lot of my friends forgot my name.

Be careful of the friends you make
Some are mosquitoes by the lake
Hanging around to always take.

Many are nothing but a green snake
You can learn from my mistake
All stretched hands, are not for handshakes.

Prosperity curse

Last night I had friends
As many as stars in sky
We were all in paradise
Seems we were born to fly
But, where did friends go?

Diamonds, silvers and golds
Never fading but bold
Everyday came with new folks
Who turned blood, I thought
Now, where did friends go?

Am I now an island?
In times of prosperity
Friends were plentiful
Now that the well is dried-
Oh, where did friends go?

Prosperity made them come,
Adversity was their text
Pray I get back on my feet
Strong, wise, fit and firm
But, where did friends go?
