Followers and Friends (Poem) (Also, Philosocom's Directory On Friendship)

Updated: Apr 11

(Articles on friendship:


Followers and friends,

Show others that you're relevant,

Even if you live on your own,

Your ultimate absence will make them moan!

Followers and friends,

For some reason are biased towards you,

Might like you more than yourself,

Might think of you while sleeping beneath the shelf!

When you might think you're worthless,

After a shower of insults given by some ***holes,

That's when they are best shined,

That's how you might, for life, be better inclined!

You might think of the emptiness,

That surround your life,

And ponder to yourself,

Is life truly meaningless?

Who will then sound the alarm,

And, thus, save you from harm?

Followers, and friends,

Appear whenever the week starts or ends,

Even if you live on your own, alone,

They are still ready for you, on the phone.

Followers and friends,

Odd favours they might take,

Whether or not your life's at stake,

A greater potential, they can make!

Whenever you need to send a letter,

Or hear someone else's thoughts,

And save yourself a good cost,

That's when they are best shined,

That's how you might, for life, be better inclined!

The world is filled by people who might want you dead,

Because of legitimate things you said,

And because you're ethnically, Jew, how so sad!

These folk can have a counter-force of sorts,

--Loyal people without a financial cost!

Who else, will prove that… she was wrong,

That you too, deserve to live,

And not be an irrelevant man, left unsung…?

Followers and friends!

Are a necessary evil!

They are not a means to an end,

They are there so both of you will feel less sad!

They will support your struggle,

No matter the cause at hand, you juggle.

They will empathize,

Your name they'll emphasize,

No matter your influence's true size!

You're going to have followers!

As you're going to get haters!

You're going to get faithful friends,

As you will create toxic enemies!

Through the clicking of the keyboard…

The world will develop!
