Reuniting with an Old Friend at the School Reunion
You astound me with your gibberish. Where did you learn this stuff?
After just a minute or two, I feel I’ve had enough.
I pride myself on faithfulness, but nonetheless I fear
somehow over all the years you’ve turned a little queer.
I never pegged you for a fool way back in our youth,
yet I think you got shorter on wits as you got long of tooth.
Though friends of long duration are my favorite kind,
somehow I feel that you’re one friend I need to leave behind.
