cut of a jib

a certain look in the eye

roll of the shoulder

when facing adversity

always attitude always

a world view

may be different

but clear thought out

prepared to argue

hold their own against yours

knows cant when seen

ditto for pretence falsity

cheap imitation shoddy

will pick you up

when you can’t

can & will knock your door

any time day or night

& you know theirs

is a safe place too

& all of this means

we don’t find friends

we recognise them
