THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY


From the same neighbourhood we grew

Even in the same school we passed through
I was fortunate to have a friend like you
A tall, handsome and cool dude

He was the enemy of my enemy
The solution when I needed a remedy
We watched the same comedy
With the likes of Murphy Eddy

In exam halls, we seat side by side
Just to spy each other's sheet
Though I didn't see that as a cheat
Because we were friends from the same street

We ate in the same room
And swept with the same broom
Almost get married to the same bride
Thank God they live in different drive

Now as adulthood beckon
There is dire need to depart ways
My wife is my new friend to reckon
Oh, I missed our friendship days
