Camaraderie of the Quagmire

Always be prepared
For the fools to protest
That your wrestling them free
From the muck of stupidity
Is not love.

They would rather
You simply join them in the
Camaraderie of the quagmire
As their real friends do—

If you then insist on their deliverance
Do not be surprised if they gaslight
That you are not acting from love at all
But from some lesser motive.
