Fierce Friends
by Jason Tomlinson

When you pass through the fire and relief is found
relief is perfected with friends around
the friends that knew you before it all
the friends that stood with you against the wall
they get it they completely understand
and they were always there ready with a hand
or a shoulder or two arms or whatever the need demanded
whatever was necessary for survival the strength of your numbers was banded
inseparable unmistakable irrefutable to say the least
any opposition was surely met by one fierce and scary beast
now that beast is a porch dog relishing battles won
the battles won by friends one for all all for one
