Money Can Buy Friends

Money can buy friends
even illusion of love.
Paul and John had it
all wrong and
found out the hard way,

how bleak it can get
when it became evident
that their loves were in
it for the
notoriety.

If those chaps fell for
this regular trap, none are
free, few find true love,
many doomed
to yearn, scream, cry, grunt:

Alone in a full
room, drunk on sadness, stoned on
venom made of their
own complete
inability to love.
