Holden Caulfield was a Friend
bear

Holden, my friend,
 1
I wish we could have drank a tonic and gin.
 2
And talked about the world at large.
 3
We are too much alike,
 4
we both hate phonies.
 5
 
The man that created me hates me
 6
and the Man that created you hates you.
 7
The only difference is:
 8
The Man that created you, could have saved the world.
 9
 
Salinger, you dick.
 10
You laid down your pen,
 11
Just when I was about to do something with my life.
 12
You could have saved a whole generation;
 13
you could have saved me.
 14
 
J.D. Salinger,
 15
This is to you:
 16
You ruined my life.
 17
Thank you.
