How a friend should be...


  A friend should be:
Radical, Fanatical, and most of all, Mathematical!

A friend should be radical
  They should love you when you're unlovable,
  Hug you when you're unhuggable,
  And bear you when you're unbearable.

A friend should be fanatical
  They should cheer when the whole world boos,
  Dance when you get good news,
  And cry when you cry, too.

But most of all,
a friend should be mathematical

  They should multiply the joy,
  Divide the sorrow,
  Subtract the past,
  And add to tomorrow,
  Calculate the need deep in your heart,
  And always be bigger than the sum of all their parts.
