A True Friend

A True Friend Anyone can be your friend, especially when you have money, or when they can take advantage of you. Everyone says - I'm your friend., but when they see you down, they don't even come around. Those friends are false. friends like these are many and you find them everywhere. If you go to jail - they don't know who you are and if you are sick - they don't visit you. These are the people that once said were your friends. A true friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, but of good luck to have. A true friend is like a star, you don't always see, but you know it's there. A true friend is like an Angel, that helps you fly when your wings want to fold. a true friend - you can not buy. It's a gift sent to you, from GOD. A true friend will be with you through thick and thin. A true friend is one that you will invite to a party and might not show up, but if you need him/her - they will be there. This is the kind of friend that I will be for you - if you will choose me to be your friend...

    You are so right, dear!!! I bet this one does well in the contest too. Oh, yes, the movie Inglorious Bastards did come to my mind as I wrote my food poem and remember the song Food glorious food from the musical Oliver? that was where my thought for the title sprang from.
