Two Friends

I once knew
two Muslim men
back when
I worked in Clapham
and it just so happened
that one was from Bosnia
and the other was from
Sierra Leonne
and both were known
to be best of friends.

They would play tennis together
whatever the weather
and they asked me often
to come and watch them
I never did

But these two friends
would often lend
me the best of advice,
they sure were wise
and they had much in common
as children
neither had learned to pray
but now, both would often say

Time went by
and soon they went their
separate ways
it fazed, me.
The way paths often collide
but only for a while
we all part ways
eventually and always.
And no one stays-
