My Friend is Getting Married

My friend is getting married,

To someone who hates me.

To a person who has erased more than five years of friendship.

To someone unwilling to trust,

Unable to compromise,

Silencing the once notorious freethinker I used to call a friend.

But have no fear,

I will save your mail.

I will wrap it up in a pretty bow.

And I will leave it on our doorstep.

An early wedding present.
