A Friend Should be
and Most of All, Mathematical
A Friend should be Radical;
- They should love you when youre unlovable,
- Hug you when youre unhuggable,
- And bear you when youre 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.
