    Why be friends with me when friends can be a variety? Friends who are close, friends who are broke. Friends who ask for little, friends who take the most. Friends who leave, friends who stay. Friends who help, friends always in the way. Friends who use you, friends who you use too, friends who sooth you, friends you sooth too. Friends you fuss with, friends you trust your life with. Friends who snitch, friends who pitch a *****. Friends who are dependable, friends who are dispensable, friends who make you apprehensive, friends who are so sensible. Friends you can count on, friends who don't count at all, friends who build you up, friends who make you fall. Friends you just met, friends you have always known, friends who treat you right, friends who do you wrong. Friends who you will let, friends that you won't, friends who will, friends who don't. Friends just like you, friends who are unique, friends who talk all the time, friends who rarely speak. Friends you know from work, friends you met in school, friends who respect your intelligence, friends who call you fool, friends who are always nice, friends who can be cruel. Friends who share their last with you, friends who hoard it all, friends who step up to the plate, friends who drop the ball, friends who are always in need, friends who never call. Friends who talk behind your back, friends who are up front, friends who won't take up your slack, friends who take the brunt. Friends who stay straight through the show, friends who leave before the end, friends who you hardly know, friends who are like kin, friends who tell it like it is, friends who just pretend, friends who tell your business, and friends like me, who are true friends!

    Can we be Friends is a melodic flow. I truly like this.
    My favorite was the following verse.
    This verse by it's self has so many ways and permutations of those friends.

    My circle of friends include friends I've known most of my life
    My sisters are my best friends
    My friends from grade school thru high school thru college
    Are in my/our circle of friends
    Not everyone who calls me friend is a friend
    Everyone's not welcome
    You can't let everyone in your circle
    Words from my mom
