The friend that never was.
A scrunched wad.
Of the artificial front you once enacted.
The airs of self-righteous holiness.
All a deceitful mask.
Beneath the spackled layers of pretend.......
is spiteful, jealous, meanness.
Looking where you can ram your poison dart into a loving heart.
Battling a multitude of No's.
Undermining basic human rights.
Dictating. Abusively hating.
From the start, you've been motivated in self-interest.
Playing concerned friend; who seems to care.
Your game is not fair.
How many have you duped?
How low you've stooped.
Is shame in the vocabulary?
Not everyone is tricked.
A good Soul, in me you picked.
To take advantage. Use.
What a cheap ruse!
You prefer that what you are......
What a gyp!
