Friends vs Family We give waivers When 'Truth-Shavers' Are good old pals Even rascals Who come in all 'Flavors' Except for out and out gaul We judge them - Not at all Whatever their 'Ends' Friends are friends 'Warts and all' But its another story When it comes to family The smallest canard Demands a standard Of tougher probity That 'Itch' To enrich A small tale Into a whale Is a 'Bitch' Yet without a doubt We cannot pout We grin and bear it Tolerate and share it That's what its all about Friends we choose And rarely lose But often 'Kin' Have been Our mismatched shoes!
