At college it had been a tiring day;

The walk home ahead of us lay.

They took out umbrellas with superior disdain.

They eyed each other-they had one to spare

Saw us drenched; had not a care.


They shoved one back into the bag

We both soaked, ran helter-skelter.

They could not us an umbrella lend

Angry, we mocked- “Fair weather friend”.
