I'm in need of good friends I can trust.  
Friends who tell what they see when they must.  
Not like those who just say, 
"You're all shiny today;" 
when, instead, they should say, "You're all rust."  

Entered in Rick Parise's contest, 'Rust'.

    Just like the late John Lennon sang in one of his songs on the "Imagine" album. "All I want is the truth, just gimmie some truth". Good limerick, John.
