Too Cold for a Friend

 

city-person-relaxing-sittingThe man has not a friend
When asked about this, he says, “Why?”
Others look confused and contend,
“You must be shy.”

When asked about this, he says, “Why?”
Since you do not defend
You must be shy,
Bucking the social trend.

Because you do not defend
Nor make an effort to try
You’re bucking the social trend
It makes us want to cry

“Okay, I’ll make an effort to try.”
Others look confused and contend,
“That makes us want to cry.”
Alas, the man still has no friend.
