Poem introduction

I was asked to write a poem for an anthology called Best Friends, and I remembered something that had happened to me at school. I wonder if it's happened to you?

Three

Three

My best friend has a best friend,
she is a bester friend than me,
but when they have a falling out
my friend is best with me.
