“ Friend ” – a singular entitlement –

Listen to audio

“ Friend ”

        – a singular entitlement –

Why do they call me friend…




What is their cause
Or purpose

To judge me worthy,

That they should levy

Such expression of regard,

Entrust this much

Responsibility,

To be bestowed

Upon my person,

Thus be asked to manage

With this impressive status…





And to this title friend

A singular entitlement,

Who finds possess

Such impartiality,

Could deem me deserving

Or indeed of capability,

To discharge such obligation

Required and implied,

One has that ability

When one is given title,

That of being called friend…





Why do they call me friend!
