The Greatest Loss
The greatest loss -
Is it to toss
a spanner in our own works
or to be unable to sack one's boss?
Is it to fail to carry one's cross
and lazily gloss
over life's green moss
painfully facing a terrible albatross?
What is the greatest loss?
Is it to pay more than the actual cost,
to fail in our quest to be first
or to be where failure seems to be a must?
I'll tell you my sis, my bros
It simply is the absence or the "no plus"
of loyal friends which one can boast of
That is really the greatest loss!
Please, let us appreciate the people we call true friends. In as much as they fill a need in our lives, let us also know that they have a need for us to fill in their lives as well. Celebrate your friends this Christmas and always!
