Indulging the Child Within (a satirical look at being a...)

"If you lie down with dogs
You get up with fleas!"
My old Mum always said
When I would get teased

By people around me,
So-called friends at the school
Until they'd be influenced
By those they thought cool.

So now I am grown up
An adult it seems
Those days should be long past
Mere remnants of dreams

Well, I am disappointed
To find things just as bad
Friends turning their heads
Although mates are sad

If others attack
A friend, so you say
You cannot ignore it
It won't go away

And I must tell you
When you start to itch
If you lie down with dogs
You wake up a bitch!
