What Are We Friends For? Poem by Ayokunle Adeleye


What are we friends for If I can't stay in your room; If you are seeing a movie And I can't see it with you? What are we friends for If I have to time my stay; If after the long arm moves through 90 degrees I must be on my way? What are we friends for If your company I eschew; If I'd rather be with strangers Than spend time with you? For i am to make new friends While keeping the old; The one is meant to be silver And the other gold But won't I have to make new friends While discarding you- the old For the new friend is accommodating And old you is cold? Or am I to play Mona Lisa- Sad but smiling- Waiting till a new friend, a deliverer Becomes my glad tiding?
