Friendship

What's friendship? The hangover's faction,
The gratis talk of outrage,
Exchange by vanity, inaction,
Or bitter shame of patronage.

wonderful expression on friendship- Exchange by vanity, inaction, Or bitter shame of patronage. ///
i get a feeling that the poet was mad about something when he worte the poem
That is a great poem, good job Alexander
Emma, a seeming Russian, tells us it is a good translation. This puzzles me, because it doesn't make any sense in English at all.
A beautiful poem about friendship.
