My Last Request

You say that you are my friend

And perhaps it's even true

But only on occasions

That clearly benefit you

If I'm in need, and I call

To ask for a helping hand

You always have some excuse

And you cannot change your plans

But you call at three a.m.

And expect me to be there

You say for me to refuse

Is to say that I don't care

If you need a ride, or cash

You don't hesitate to ask

But to get the same from you

Is an impossible task

So, next time you need a friend

Dial someone else's number

Because I have decided

It's time to disencumber

Myself from the likes of you

And I don't wish you the best

Don't call me, I won't call you

And that is my last request
