Familiarity breeds contempt,
This is true but only as exception,
Where familiarity is relation of dependence,
Where it is formed out of group living,
Instances of contempt are there,
But they are far less than other happy/normal instances,
Where we live together in abandon,
Supporting each other,
And even awaiting another moment of contempt,
Here familiarity no doubt bred contempt but then,
It bred more familiarity all along.
