A friend we all have

Picture Courtesy: picture-box.ru

He is aware, he is burning his money

With every cigarette he smokes.

He is too fond of seriousness

And it reflects in his jokes.

His friends are his puppets,

He teaches them discipline,

Secrets of going to bad places

And coming out clean.

Self reliance is his motto,

Which he often forgets.

Asks his friends politely

To pay for his cigarettes.

He holds tiny birds

Behind the bars

And plays songs of freedom

On his guitar.

His spirit smells like of a teen

With an age old attire

People, this is a true story,

Don’t call it satire.
