When people discuss their family letters,
I’m left out of this tiresome equation,
which threatens to leave me sadly lonesome.
I’ve come from folks, who think they’re my betters,
since I did not adhere to their suasion,
but instead sought out Nature’s atonement –
To fly, a bird, escaping Earth’s fetters;
A cat listens to ALL, on occasion.
An agitated Rabbit pounds Earth’s drum…
To those who doubt, I say, “WELL EXCUSE ME”
