Fair Weather Friend

By Stanley Collymore

Your friendship means the world to me and will remain
unalterably as solid as any friendship could possibly
be, unless of course unwittingly or deliberately
you get yourself into any difficulty that’s
likely to prove uncomfortable
or embarrassing for me;
in which case I reserve the right to unilaterally
change my mind, then either flow with the
tide of those who condemn and despise
you or simply sit uneasily on the
fence of time, waiting for an
outcome before deciding
which way I should
jump, as any self-respecting,
fair-weather friend will do.
