Company

You are only as good as
the company you keep
and as a pseudo-orphan
as an almost-alone
I was not much good at all
and as I got older – as I
gained and lost again
I learned to be as good
as the things I learn
and as the things I say
the knowledge I keep,
the things that I know
they keep me awake
and they put me to sleep
