Obituary To Friendship
~Marge Tindal~1999

A stranger came to my town today.
I knew not his face or his name.
But, friends, the discontent he spread among us,
causes me to hang my head in shame.

He didn't like the way we did things here.
Nothing suited his taste.
He began to divide the friends herein.
Such a pity. Such a waste.

Oh, we tried to resist him at first,
even thought that we might win.
But he was so deviously clever,
that one by one....we gave in.

Bickering, bitching and fighting ensued.
The hatred spread far and wide.
It entered our lives, our hearts and our homes;
and abruptly, friendship died.

As I sit alone in the dark of the night,
I am saddened to recall,
That while love was being torn asunder,
I sadly did nothing at all.

Very sad. Sometimes though there is nothing that can be done. If someone wants to cause trouble they will. I know a few like that. They thrive on strife, whatever they can create. They are to be pitied though for they must be so empty inside. You have expressed the mechanics of this type of person very well. And welcome to Passions. I know you'll like it here!

Thank you, Denise and Watcher ...
Like it? Like it? Oh, I already do very much. (have one small question) Is there such a thing as posting TOO MUCH ? My pen is full to overflowing with words from my heart. Being a newcomer ... I've shifted to neutral and just sit here idling until a reasonable amount of time passes.
My tank's full and I'm raring to go !
