Tribute to Human Friendship
by Lisa Lock
I find it all very confusing
The way that people can be
Just when I feel that I’ve found a friend
It seems they will double-cross me
Why can’t people be honest?
Why can’t people be kind?
Why is this world so full of the types,
who use you and fuck-up your mind?
I repeatedly try to move-on
and believe that they’re not all that way
That it’s me who misunderstands them
It’s all in my head they betray
But, as I sit and I ponder
The past very fresh, not forgotten fog
I realise with disappointing clarity
The only friend I will ever trust is my dog
