RECIPE FOR FRIENDSHIP
Fold two hands together,
And express a dash of sorrow,
Marinate it overnight,
And work on it tomorrow.
Chop one grudge in tiny pieces,
Add several cups of love,
Dredge with a large sized smile
Mix with the ingredients above.
Dissolve the hate within you,
By doing a good deed,
Cut in and help your friend,
If he should be in need.
Stir in laughter, love, and kindness
From the heart it has to come,
Toss with genuine forgiveness
And give your neighbor some.
The amount of people served,
Will depend on you,
It can serve the whole wide world,
If you really want it to.
