Enemies In Friendly Skin


Don't trust a brother in need
He is quick to promise, slow to repay
I remember all the brothers I met
Some are kind, some rude, and carefree
But I also learnt one thing
The ones who are less religious
Show mercy than the fanatics
The rude ones are worth of friendship
Than the nice and orderly
You see, orderly people are difficult
They rather let you die
Than break their code
They rather give millions to the church
Than give a cent to a friend in need
They pray for the healthy few
While the masses die of ailment
Funny it seems but I rather be
A friend to the rude than the orderly
