“Great saying on dealing with Backstabbers and Phoney Friends” courtesy of image Google search.

It was over thirty years ago
that a departed old friend
gave me great advice about friendships.
 
His name was Cliff Russell.
He related to me that there were
three kinds of people in the world.
 
There were the Givers
There were the Takers
There were the Givers and the Takers.
 
Cliff related that “Takers”
will suck life from your
heart and soul.
This day I have started
Housecleaning of all
“Takers from my Life.”
 
I started with
all their contact information
from my e-mail programs.
 
I removed all their
contact information
from my Smartphone.
 
I removed all their pictures
from both my computer and Smartphone.
Every scrape of paper, card, letter
picture with their image upon them
were destroyed.
 
Finally and not least
when friends asked me
about them
I told them we severed
our relationship because
our perceptions of life 
were no longer in symphony
with each other.
 
When I finished
doing all these things
I took a long shower
to get the stink of them
off my body.
