It seems that Friendship is precarious, once money is involved;
I loaned you £40,000 so your serious dilemma could be solved.
We have been friends for over 40 years and closer even than that;
Now you cannot speak to me at all, after the ‘Philippines’ spat.
Perhaps it was the excuse you needed to distance me from you;
I am deeply hurt that this rift is caused over one thing I didn’t do.
You stated that: The next time we would speak would be when you paid the balance;
I feel the time to converse has arrived, to agree your final stance.
I am flexible, in fact you may recognise that particular trait in me;
Yet now I would appreciate a call to outline matters of debt, that were Interest Free.
