They Say They Love - But

Imran is an anthropologist who researches and writes on self-improvement.

Flowers, oh, but they were shot from the gun.

Flowers, oh, but they were shot from the gun.

Love, Is It?

They say they are close
But their manners choke
Closer they come
Faker they become
Still they claim they are close...

They say they love
They have an invisible dagger to shove
So cleverly they fool
Beware, they bring doom
Yet they declare they love

They say they are friends
Careful! they pretend
They could be your real foe
Slow poison they will blow
Yet they call themselves friends.

They say they are Kith and Kin
Their claim reeks of a major sin
All they wish is for you to fail
So that they can mock and assail
Still they boast they are kith and kin

People are mean everywhere
They won't spare you anywhere
In this world, as you have to live
All you can do is forgive
Because they also say you can condone
Therefore, pardon and ignore silly groan
