If I had a backbone
I’d tell you what I’d do,
the first word out would be ‘no’
and I’d specifically say it to you.
I’d hold my ground firmly
and I would be ready to argue.
We’d do things my way for a change
instead of me catering to you.
I may not always be right
but you would see my point of view.
Alas, even this is written in passive voice
because all this I will never do!
