Silver and Gold

Well at least the first half of the phrase is spot on.
They say to, "make new friends, but keep the old..."
Yet I must contend with the rigid appearance of those minereal assignments.

The past several years proved the adage half false.
First glancing showed silver, but second showed platinum;
and that which I thought undoubtedly gold, was only the fool's variety.

Marianne- yeah, now that I read it again, it ends on a sad note, but in truth the platinum friends were the reason I wanted to write this.
Teal- thank you
