would not have helped

he needed a friend

instead chose to make his end

& I wanted to help

would have been there

try to get him through his black days

I understood he was disillusioned

as any bright people are

the closer you get

to anything

any organisation

you begin to see the smoke

mirrors facades illusions

what they say they are

just aren’t

& the trick the truth

is to be who you are

find your own way through

in a world of delusions

be who you be

treat everything everyone you see

as the imposters they are

but no

on reflection

this would not have helped
