RULES

“Be a good citizen,”
My teachers all said.
Go on the green light,
Stop on the red.

Try your very best
To keep your self fed,
But break any rules
And you’re as good as dead.

One thing about rules
I never could see:
What right has anyone
To give orders to me?

It was no choice of mine
To be born in society.
I don’t need permission,
I just want to be free.
