So i came across this in a psychology book, and i found it very intriguing. Its a very old poem from Ghana in west Africa

Beware of friends.
Some are snakes under grass;
Some are lions in sheep’s clothing;
Some are jealousies behind their facades of praises;
Some are just no good;
Beware of friends.

I find it striking that in a culture so bound by relationships and social order that one could perceive friends in such a cynical way. But i personally find comfort in the fact that others see through this lens at times, for i have fallen victim for a lion in sheeps clothing.
