I'll OpposeA Poem by leatherandlace
We are the girls not to be pushed down.
Like a b***h, you will command me to stay
but stillness and I have never
been well acquainted.
I will walk onto the lawns
and paw the grass,
but you can't make me stop
without a leash.
I will track mud throughout
and take up room on your bed;
I was never respectful of rules.
I'll drool and I'll growl,
because you expect my mouth
to be dry
and my voice to utter quiet whines.
I won't eat the food you provide
but I'll take the food from your plate,
and when I am punished and cast out
into the cold darkness,
don't expect me to beg for forgiveness.
I'd rather endure.
When you call for me, I won't come
and when you pull at me
You want to groom me
and cut the tangles from me,
but you'd never find the patience.
Instead you will abandon me,
a lost cause,
a cast away,
and still I wander where I please.
