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”
