Best of Party Friends a Two Way Street

My friends never judge me, hic!

We are a bunch of broad streets
Our thin twin lines of DNA
Relying more on friendly signposts
As unconditional they say

All our friends are bloody marvelous
Supporting every thing we do
Unlike relatives who seethe and suck
With their blanket points of view

Why should we have to like them
These crazy links to mum and dad
when friendship lights shine lovingly
In so much joy we’re never sad

In need of flattery and compliments
Pats on our backs to bring us cheer
We all meet up convivially
Our oh so friendly near and dear

What then of those our septic grumps
Who have no right to put us right
That our life style may give some concern
Among our friends that’s out of sight

Our friends will never judge us
When we are on or off our face
In fact they wouldn’t ever give a jot
Every substance has its place

What a blow our distant tribe
It’s our friends we’re grateful for
A cheerful din like a public Inn
A friendship road of just one more

One hears how the extended family is so important to the well being and contribution to young parents and their children. And yet:

“He that has once done you a kindness will be more ready to do
you another, than he whom you yourself have obliged.”
Benjamin Franklin

You say you are looking for someone
Never weak but always strong
someone who'll close their eyes to you
Whether you are right or wrong 

Someone who'll die for you and more
It aint me babe who you are looking for 
Bob Dylan
