The Friend Collectors


How long does it take ? Not months maybe years.

You wonder how invites have come to be missed,

then the realisation nights out are now a few beers,

that you weren’t there when everyone was pissed.

You were once first to be asked and now you’re not.

There is no contact for months like you don’t exist,

and if invites come it’s for that ‘tick the box’ slot.

You finally realise that you’re no longer ‘A’ list.

There’s no malice or ill feeling at what’s been done

though more often than not you’ll hear “it depends”

the fact is you’re probably no longer such good fun

and they’ve been busy collecting new friends.
