I may be smart but really dumb
At MY age to sign up to Run
And Chase You and other Sons-of-Guns
Who want to house me Under Thumb.

It’s time I find Myself a Clue,
And Get the Hell AWAY from You!

I’ll hold Myself both Tall and Free.
Newly Freed, I’m Free Indeed,
Bursting with the Fully Free
Freedom Only Found in Me.

Speaking More of ME Than You of YOU
Means I Listen NOT to You??!!
Other folks must offer up
Details of the Life they Love,
Describe the Humans they’ve become
And tell us What We Need to Know.

Forgive me that not Coaxing, Cajoling, Extracting
From your Passive Corpse until Removed
Words you Yearn to Vocalize
But UnBravely Do Not Do
A sign NO TALKING SKILLS have You!

Won’t suffer Cowards, fools, or Grownup Toddlers,
So One Day if you should Raise Yourself,
Please reach out and freely call.
Should you Stay so Infantile?
Don’t bother calling Me at all.
