Thanks to you

I know how much

you like to control things.

I see your forte

is clipping others’ wings.

You may be smarter

but you’re not wiser.

You may be richer

but you’re not better.

You spent a lot of money

to become accomplished.

But you missed a spot

and could use some more polish.

So thank you, thank you

for crushing me down to size.

But I won’t stay down –

I will get up, I will arise.

I will remember

how you treated me

And I will make a note

of how I don’t want to be.
