Fair Weather Friend.

Expendable to many,

a convenience when needed…

Remembered when there’s a need

Yet forgotten easily…

A spare tyre in fair-weather

Tagging along to the will of

Friends that rhyme with the weather,

dance naked in the rainbow

But quick to flee drenched in the rain

like fowls on a rainy day…

Mental wreckage for a lonely

life lived in turmoil

Pleasing and encouraging fake friends

Feeding the arms of loneliness

and depression..

Such is the plight of a man that

prefers to be an expendable


a cast out shadow,

dancing to the whim of convenience…

mockery to his pathetic life,

shreds of regret on his skin…

cussing and whining-

sadness, loneliness


This is what happens to a man

that lives a life pleasing everyone,

being expendable to many

losing himself in wrong crowds,

fake friendships and

forgetting who he is and

the most important things…



Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
